Goodbye Wovember...

I'm sneeking in under the wire with this one, I meant to write about it much earlier in the month but time got away from me somewhat.....

This blog has been championing Wool this month - not only for knitting but clothes available on the high street, the Hall of Shame is an eye opening look at misleading labelling.

I visited Frome recently and the lovely Jen took me to her Local Yarn Shop where I picked up these 2 balls of proper woolly wool in natural colours...


I think it will be a hat and I will bedeck with one or more of the fantastic badges made especially for Wovember from this Etsy shop


I also picked up this set of fibre bumps from Hilltop Cloud this month, all natural colours from various breeds, they would be perfect for the Sheepheid hat but I've got the yarn for that already so I'll have to come up with something else, maybe for Wovember 2012.....


Sorry for the plastic covered photo but I want to keep them all labelled and in order - I did give them a sniff (I know I'm not the only one who sniffs fibre and yarn - I've witnessed others do the same!) and it smells so deliciously sheepy!


  1. Nice neutrals.
    The buttons remind me of when my mum used to fabric cover buttons for some sewing project. I used to help her too.

  2. Love all of that. I'm a very natural woolly person.

  3. Awwwww. Those badges and that fibre all look really lovely! Thank you for coming to visit!

  4. Those little bags of fibre are so cute I've just had to order some - sheepheid here I come!
