Self-Designed Latch Hook Rug Madness

Here is my latest, crazy idea that I'm on a roll with this week: My own-designed latch hook rug!

This thought first came into my head as a reality mid to late December 2012, however I did post this amazing DIY from a 70s book I had back in July: 70s rug hooking.

Rug hooking is essentially a lost art if you ask me. Most kits that come in stores are super-dorky -  Tweety bird, Eeyore, a husky face.... I don't know. Odd, vague things like that. It doesn't have to be that way as you can see in the 70s blog post which includes a super-crazy geometric pattern.

Me and Max are reorganizing the entire living room sometime next week and I really want a crazy area rug that will go underneath the small dining room table we have. This area rug is planned to be about 5 feet by 3 feet.
