It's Wovember!

Wear wool!  Spin, knit, card, felt, weave... WOOL!

Also on Ravelry, Facebook and Twitter

And for anyone concerned that Wovember and Movember can't co-exist, Sue Blacker has come up with the perfect solution :)

I'm felting for all I'm worth. My daughter is having some craft stalls, selling handmade cards and decorations, in the run up to Christmas and has asked me for some needle-felted items. I've made several tooth fairy hangings and am now busy making tree decorations. Hope they all sell or my tree will be over crowded.

I've just received three willow wreaths that I ordered from Amazon and I've started to make holly leaves to decorate them. I think I'll do a Christmas rose as well. I've also got polystyrene balls to felt into baubles. Not as easy as it looked on YouTube.

I've got the hang of making the baubles. I needle felt them onto the polystyrene balls just enough to keep the wool in place, then wet felt them until the felt is firm then, for good measure, they go in the washing machine but only on 30C.

I have no idea about weaving, but Have had a go at sewing - I bought men's sweaters second hand, gave them a hot wash and made the CUTEST baby boy trousers ever! Will make the next size up when get the chance! I love wearing a wool jumper, I want my baby to be warm  but not sweaty in the cold weather too!

 ??? Does anywhere sell wool baby clothes at reasonable prices? Will have a look and see if I can get some inspiration!

If you can knit :knit:, knit some baby clothes from a wool yarn of your choice.  Baby clothes are great fun to knit - they are so wee, they take no time to make!  :D
