Are you progging, or hooking (or clipping). Hopefully proggy matting if you are upt'north! My four year old got a progger for her birthday, though I'm not sure I want to get into that just yet.

I love that! It's so hard to find a shop that sells happy colors of wool..they're always grays, browns, old reds... I've bought my own dye, but still...I'd really like to find a happy wool shop.
