Latch hooking is one of the rare fiber arts that combines ease and flexibility. This yarn craft takes just minutes to learn, and the only materials required are a latch hook, yarn, and latch canvas. Despite its simplicity, the medium offers endless possibilities from home decoration to provocative artwork. Until now, latch hooking has become stuck in deep shag kitsch. But in Latch-hooking Rugs, artist and educator Lynda Spiro takes the craft beyond its acrylic past. Thanks to Spiro's new book, there is no need to be limited by the dated designs found in most commercial latch hook kits. Latch-hooking Rugs teaches the basic techniques of the craft through supportive step-by-step directions, color illustrations, and vibrant photographs. The handbook also contains instructions for more than thirty different rug and wall-hanging projects, from bold stripes and checks to floral motifs to three-dimensional effects, all presented in colorways that complement today's decor. For latch-hookers who wish to create their own unique works, Spiro includes a chapter on design and inspiration. She even offers instruction on ways to use leftover yarn. With more than 100 color illustrations and dozens of contemporary designs, Latch-hooking Rugs revives the meditative craft of latch hooking for today's crafter.

The Tarzana Hookers’ Yarn University has been a big success, and the classes have drawn in a slew of new crochet devotees. A less welcome arrival is the boxy monstrosity in the yard behind Molly’s house.

To Molly’s shock, Barry reports that nothing is amiss with her neighbors and asks her to lay off with the amateur detecting. Molly knows she wasn’t just seeing things, but with no body to prove her case she’ll have to unravel the evidence on her own—because someone in Tarzana is tangled up in murder...

Scrappy Hooked Rugs

I tend to stick with these finishing techniques because they are textural in a way
that complements the hooking. These firm edges protect the edge of hooking,
and the yarn, if whipped moderately tight, will stand the test of wear on the floor.
