Latch Hooking, everybody's doing it!

Inspired by Superman the movie and "rug hooking fever" (common in 1979) I did attempt to do a rug of Superman's shield when I was eight. Unfortunately, I had the patience of an eight-year-old boy.

Heh, heh!
Yeah. latch hooking! As popular with rowdy, little boys, as those little plastic squares...with rods on their tops, that help you make strings into potholders! Hours of fun. :)

Trivia- the 1950s, + 1960s, [American-football player], Mr. Rosey Grier, likes the sewing hobby, called needlepoint. I really like Rosey.

(Rosey was famous in the 1970s, too).

I think rug hooking was illegal in my state.

I've had an old latch hooking of Papa Smurf since the early 1980's. I had a lot of patience with it. It took me 2 years to complete it.
