Hooking rugs has been popular in North America for over 200 years but it was during the late 1970s and early 1980s that crafters made them for fun instead of necessity.  I can remember my first rug kit and how I had to measure and cut the yarn, how time consuming!  The next year the kits came with recut yarn, what a concept!  I do find it funny that of the three to four rugs I did make not one of them ever touched the floor!  Like I said, it was for fun, not necessity! 🙂
