Jonathan Adler single-handedly made needlepoint cool again, and he's got me wanting to take up the hobby. If and when I do, you won't catch me needlepointing any cat motifs. Of course, my pattern will have to be hip. (Sorry, cat lovers.) I'm considering kicking off with a Hug Needlepoint Kit ($106) from former graphic designer Emily Peacock, which comes complete with a canvas, yarn, a needle, and instructions (a must) — essentially all you need to get your NP on! Well, OK, some patience and maybe a glass of wine may also be crucial . . .
