Wooly Santa warms me in a changing season

For the holidays I have just listed my new Wooly Santa PDF instant download on Etsy. This pattern set comes with 2 sizes: 12″ x 20″ for rug hooking, and 3″ x 5″ for punchneedle embroidery.

Santa and his favorite sheep friends are ready to help you get into the holiday mood. They are well aware that it has been unseasonably cold and even snowy and that you could use a bit of cheer.

Santa was inspired by vintage Christmas postcards as well as some chalkware Santas that I came across. I loved hooking him with faded tones of light red, deep night blues and snowy aquas. Even Santa can get cold, and he is paying tribute to his wooly friends who make his job more comfortable.

And my sentiments are exactly with him. Thank you wool bearers! You make my rug hooking and knitting and crocheting and spinning world go round! I surround myself with beautiful colors of wool fabrics, yarns and fibers to work with. There is nothing quite as soul satisfying as wool.

So I think I will grab some hot cocoa, a wool project, and sit by the fire to warm my toes — as well as my spirits.

Across the chilly miles, have a creative day ~ Karen

  1. It was great to see you in Tipp City again. Thanks for the patterns. I finished the tree skirt yesterday and Santa is close to be completed.


  2. What a neat Santa–just what I needed! Will try to get started tomorrow–which to do first?? The rug or the embroidery?? dilemma! 🙂


  3. I saw this rug on Ali’s blog and fell in love with it. I was so glad to read your blog and see that you have it in your etsy shop. I’ve already purchased it. I’ve been looking for a santa rug pattern, as I have a small Santa collection. Yours just spoke to me and I had to have it. Thanks!
