Re: Hooks

Thanks for the tip. I've been getting my hooks from Hook and Hackle for the past several years, but they aren't selling them anymore. This is a much better price too. Definitely gonna start buying some of these when my stash starts going down.

Re: Partridge & Tups Variations (Tutorial / SBS)

Awesome tie Ray! I just went to Joann's and picked 2 of the colors, Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool #098 and the Patons bright red. The lady at Joann's said she has never seen any of the Lion Brand Red #114 in stock. They didn't have any of the Felt Works Cheddar either, so I ordered some on Amazon. Can...

Re: North Country spider article

Just came across this thread yesterday. This has been one of the most informative threads I've read in a little while.

He said t...
