The toenail/knittng match FTW!! #Regram via @ayarnstory Day 3 - Sweater - I want to be a sweater knitter but I’m currently more of a sweater planner and sweater starter. This is Enso, which I started well over a year ago. The body is now done and 3/4 of one sleeve are also complete. Don’t know why it’s languishing, I adore the yarn, the pattern is lovely and I really want to wear it. I will be a sweater knitter, someday......#wovemberinstachallenge #wearwoolforwovember #wovember #ayarnstory #eastlondonknits #zenvariations #madewiththefibreco #thefibreco #sweaterknitter

Теперь, когда контрольная работа сдана и принята, можно раскрыть детали. Мне повезло участвовать в тестировании #jayceecardigan от @lilalu72 Причём повезло вдвойне. Во-первых, тестирование это интересно, а во-вторых, мне нравятся работы Изабель. Больше подробностей на страничке автора.

А как проходит ваше воскресенье? У меня с вязанием и кофе. В планах сегодня закончить. Остался один рукав и пряжи в обрез😞ох, не люблю я, когда на миллиметраже. #sunday #coffeetime #winterfashion #trainknitting #handwork #winter #knitsofinstagram #knitter #knittersoftheworld #knitting #knittingaddict #madeinukraine #ручноевязание #вяжутнетолькобабушки #knitfashion #strikking #knit_inspiration #knitlife #followknitters #fonty #handmade #i_love_knitting #instaknit #test #hat #wovember #wearwoolforwovember #weareknitters
Вяжу, а показать толком нечего. Впереди километры лицевой глади😉всё, что я сейчас вяжу, вяжется лицевыми петлями. Меняется только цвет. Такая у меня на ближайшие дни/недели забава😀😀😀 #trainknitting #winterfashion #winter #knitsofinstagram #knitter #knittersoftheworld #knitting #knittingaddict #madeinukraine #ручноевязание #вяжутнетолькобабушки #knitfashion #strikking #knit_inspiration #knitlife #followknitters #fonty #handmade #i_love_knitting #instaknit #test #hat #wovember #wearwoolforwovember #weareknitters
Ещё про варежки. Сегодня солнце пришлось буквально ловить. Очень хотелось показать вам варежки и #softdonegaltweed после всех манипуляций. Стирала дважды. После первой стирки твид полностью не отмылся от обработки и не распушился(на видео это видно). Зато после второго раза всё просто замечательно. Твид распушился и стал мягче, а варежки сели идеально по руке, как и задумывалось. И да, в случае с твидом, без образца не обойтись никак. Может кому- то эта информация пригодится. Всем творческого вторника😍😍😍 #mittens #handmade #варежки #trainknitting #winterfashion #winter #knitsofinstagram #knitter #knittersoftheworld #knitting #knittingaddict #madeinukraine #ручноевязание #вяжутнетолькобабушки #knitfashion #strikking #knit_inspiration #knitlife #followknitters #tweed #i_love_knitting #instaknit #wearwoolforwovember #weareknitters
Этот свитер из разряда "длительных недовязов". Почему появляются недовязы как- нибудь в другой раз. У каждой вязальщицы на этот вопрос, ответ конечно свой. Сегодня про "довязы" и про радость от того, что закончил. Этой радостью я с вами и делюсь. И хоть освещение не то, и снег за окном, сей факт в виде фото, я себе на память оставлю и вам покажу. Уже можно. Теперь, когда успешно пройдены примерка, вто и блокировка, свитер можно смело переквалифицировать из обидного статуса в почётное, "закончен". Хорошего начала недели😊 #monday #mohair #kidmohair #newsweater #trainknitting #winterfashion #winter #knitsofinstagram #knitter #knittersoftheworld #knitting #knittingaddict #madeinukraine #ручноевязание #вяжутнетолькобабушки #knitfashion #strikking #knit_inspiration #knitlife #followknitters #handmade #i_love_knitting #instaknit #sweater #wearwoolforwovember #weareknitters #knitwear
Шапочка из #softdonegaltweed готова. И никакие морозы, а главное ветра, в ней не страшны. Несмотря на свою кажущуюся громоздкость и неповоротливость, на самом деле она очень уютная, нежная, тёплая и лёгкая. #newhat #trainknitting #winterfashion #winter #knitsofinstagram #knitter #knittersoftheworld #knitting #knittingaddict #madeinukraine #ручноевязание #вяжутнетолькобабушки #knitfashion #strikking #knit_inspiration #knitlife #followknitters #december #handmade #i_love_knitting #instaknit #winterfashion #hat #wovember #wearwoolforwovember #weareknitters #merinowolle #шапка
Замёрзла. Тот редкий случай, когда решение принимается мгновенно. Цвет, узор и главное, время. Шапочка для себя из #softdonegaltweed вяжется очень быстро. #newhat #trainknitting #winterfashion #winter #knitsofinstagram #knitter #knittersoftheworld #knitting #knittingaddict #madeinukraine #ручноевязание #вяжутнетолькобабушки #knitfashion #strikking #knit_inspiration #knitlife #followknitters #december #handmade #i_love_knitting #instaknit #winterfashion #hat #wovember #wearwoolforwovember #weareknitters #merinowolle #шапка

За кадром куча незаконченного, а мне приспичило начать новое. К этому я подбиралась и настраивалась долго. Новая пряжа, тоненькие спицы, долгоиграющий процесс, а хотелось чего-то простого. Теперь, когда первые сомнения преодолены и расчёты проверены, наслаждаюсь процессом. p.s. За окном туман и хмуро, а дома так уютно с 🎄и ароматным чаем. Всем уютного пятничного вечера за любимым занятием. #newproject #evening #friday #trainknitting #winterfashion #winter #knitsofinstagram #knitter #knittersoftheworld #knitting #knittingaddict #madeinukraine #ручноевязание #вяжутнетолькобабушки #knitfashion #strikking #knit_inspiration #knitlife #followknitters #december #handmade #i_love_knitting #instaknit #winterfashion #wearwoolforwovember #weareknitters #lopapeysa #knitwear

BENDITA RUTINA . . . Y hoy que hace un frío que pela en todos lados, y que ya sí que parece que se acabaron las fiestas, y que hasta las siguientes todavía nos quedan unos meses... Hay que celebrarlo! 🎉 Vale que #christmasisover y que #winterishere parece que por bastante tiempo, pero nada de estar tristes ni melancólicos. Que las fiestas molan? Claro que sí! Pero los días de frío y de normalidad también molan mucho; y es que lo que más apetece es no parar de tejer calentito tan a gustito en casa (o cafetería, o tienda, o bar, o cualquier otro sitio de reunión) . Para mí está tarde ha sido de sofá, manta, Netflix y tejer lopi, que no hay lana tan calentita como esta 😊 ¿Y qué tal ha ido tu tarde? . . . Lana Léttlopi, agujas @hiyahiyaeurope y cortahilos todo a la venta en tienda física y online . #lopi #lopiwool #lopiyarn #yarnlove #yarnporn #knittinginspiration #knit #knitting #knitters #knittersofig #tejeresmisuperpoder #tejer #tejermola #knitstagram #instaknit #weaewool #makersgonnamake #wearwoolforwovember #handmadewardrobe #handknit #knittersofinstagram
Тёплый уютный свитер из #tweed потихоньку вяжется. Сегодня вечером полетели редкие снежинки, почти зима, почти праздничное настроение. #newsweater #trainknitting #winterfashion #winter #knitsofinstagram #knitter #knittersoftheworld #knitting #knittingaddict #madeinukraine #ручноевязание #вяжутнетолькобабушки #knitfashion #strikking #knit_inspiration #knitlife #followknitters #december #handmade #i_love_knitting #instaknit #winterfashion #sweater #wearwoolforwovember #weareknitters #lopapeysa #knitwear
На календаре пять дней до Нового года и 100 000 недовязов. И как не планируй, все они плавно перетекут под бой курантов в следующий год. Что в итоге? Начинаю новый свитер @junkookamoto212 и получаю удовольствие от процесса. А планы на то и планы, чтоб их строить. Всем праздничного🎉🎄🎈🎄настроения. #newsweater #trainknitting #winterfashion #winter #knitsofinstagram #knitter #knittersoftheworld #knitting #knittingaddict #madeinukraine #ручноевязание #вяжутнетолькобабушки #knitfashion #strikking #knit_inspiration #knitlife #followknitters #december #handmade #i_love_knitting #instaknit #winterfashion #sweater #wearwoolforwovember #weareknitters #tweed #lopapeysa #knitwear
Пока падал ❄❄❄родилась шапочка. Теперь вопрос, делать помпон или нет? А может связать и в другом цвете? p.s. шапочка вязалась по фото из интернета #newhat #trainknitting #winterfashion #winter #knitsofinstagram #knitter #knittersoftheworld #knitting #knittingaddict #madeinukraine #ручноевязание #вяжутнетолькобабушки #knitfashion #strikking #knit_inspiration #knitlife #followknitters #december #handmade #i_love_knitting #instaknit #winterfashion #hat #wovember #wearwoolforwovember #weareknitters #merinowolle #шапка #tweed

Indie Gift-A-Long Challenge - Indie Dyers: It's no secret I love indie dyed yarn ❤️ Solid, semi-solid, speckled, muted variegated, self-striping for socks... Love, love, love! I'm not going to pick a favorite or try to list all dyers I love, but one of the special ones is Tuskenknits yarn dyed by my friend Maria ❤️ Every colorway she does is utterly stunning! If you haven't seen her yarn yet, go check out her Instagram feed: @tuskenknits • Maria sent these three skeins to me this summer and I've since then turned them into a shawl design. And I love it so! • • • #wovemberinstachallenge #wovember2017 #wearwoolforwovember #linaknits #linaknitsdesings #findjoyineverystitch #indiedesigner #fiberboss #ravelry #knittersofinstagram #indiedyer #woollyfriends #indiedyedyarn
Wool people: packing up my class supplies to teach seaming and buttonholes and heel flaps tomorrow at the place where my wool people gather @quixoticfibers ❤️ I always feel so privileged to be able to help knitters be more confident in their skills, overcome hurdles, and make things they love. Even though today is Dec 1, this is my last post for #wovember —it’s been fun! 😘
Por aquí hace muuuucho frío, y se han alineado los astros para que me ponga a tejer otro #lopapeysa (ya es el quinto), y es que: 1. ha llegado la ola esa de frío que nos prometían que llegaría ❄ 2. Justo el día que empieza se nos estropea en casa la caldera y no hay ni agua caliente ni calefacción hasta el lunes 🏡 3. Esta semana en la tienda me han preguntado varias veces por ellas y os juro que cada vez que paso por delante me hablan 🤔 . Así que contra el frío helador que nos toca vivir fuera de casa, y a nosotros también en ella, al menos hasta el lunes: 💻 Como la habitación del ordenador está helada, habrá que estar tejiendo en el salón. 🏋 Las duchas son en el gimnasio, ahora ya no hay excusa para no ir. ☕ Muchas infusiones y muchas capas de lana encima. ❤Y por la noche mucho amor 😂😂😂 . Por cierto... Me encanta ver como se deshacen las madejas de dentro hacia afuera como la de la foto 😊 . #lopi #lopiwool #lopiyarn #yarnlove #yarnporn #knittinginspiration #knit #knitting #knitters #knittersofig #tejeresmisuperpoder #tejer #tejermola #knitstagram #instaknit #weaewool #makersgonnamake #wearwoolforwovember #handmadewardrobe #handknit #knittersofinstagram
One book launch party down, one to go! Sunday I'll be signing books between 3pm & 4.30pm at @wildandwoollyshop in London. Crowdfunding event runs 5pm-6.30pm - I'll be talking about the experience of making the book and share some stories from behind the scenes. Thank you to everybody who showed up yesterday in Edinburgh - what a wonderful experience it was 💛 @Regranned from @stitchmastery - Final day of #wovemberinstachallenge and the prompt is #woolpeople , which is very appropriate given today we visited @kariebookish ’s launch of This Thing of Paper (complete with Stitchmastery charts ☺️) at Kathy’s Knits in Edinburgh. A very fine example of a wool person, and a nice selection of woolly people visiting too. Congratulations on a lovely book, Karie! #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday #knitdesigners #booklaunch #indiedesigner #yarnaddict #bellylaughsalltheway
#wovemberinstachallenge Well here we have my wovember month in one! It was fun to think about all the words @yarnthecity and @wovemberwool gave me.

29. Maker and 30. Wool People. I tried to do these yesterday and the day before but kept crashing my phone trying to go through ALL THE PHOTOS and then getting all angsty because you can only do 10 pix at a time on instagram. And there are about ten million makers and wool people I'd love to shout out. Here's a handful - just the tip of the iceberg, really - and a big mega shout out to you if you're reading and following. Our community of woolly makers is amazing and keeps on growing. In the pix @sweaterspotter at @wildandwoollyshop launching Penguin... Anna Maltz makes amazing knitwear designs, books and instagram posts; @knittingtastic with wool from her father's flock at @edinyarnfest... Rachel makes yarn and she makes me laugh and she makes knitting patterns and she makes other people's knitting patterns work; Carol Thorpe of the Oxford Guild of Weavers Spinners and Dyers with the fantastic @tomofholland... Both these buddies make mends, make yarn, make sweaters, make repairs, make their own clothes and make the world more awesome; OF COURSE my no. 1 co-Wovemberist, @knit_british who makes Wovember and the knit British podcast and many gorgeous woolly things; @donnasmithdesigns who makes yarn from her sheep and knitwear designs and who comes from a long line of Shetland makkers; and @myshetlandgarden who makes Shetland Wool Week happen; @janinebajus aka FERAL KNITTER and author of THE JOY OF COLOR who makes beautiful Fair Isle designs and knitwear and who has made a gorgeous book pictured here with me and with her friend @christyknowlton who is a knitter, sewist and maker, too... Also shown here @deborah.gray7 who makes handspun yarns, sweaters and hats, and @katedaviesdesigns who makes yarn, patterns, books and snoods... and @ellalcgordon who makes Crofthoose cushions, knitting patterns and glorious handknits to wear. Could have added fifty million more but will leave it at this for now, with a massive thank you to @allidecks and @porpoise_fur of @yarninthecity for organising such an amazing instagram challenge for Wovember. It's been brilliant, thank you so much and thanks to all the wool people and makers who joined in #wovember2017 #wearwoolforwovember
November was for sweaters and hats. Bye, bye and hello to the last month of 2017 with all its magic 💫 #wearwoolforwovember
These are my wool people! They keep me motivated and interested. They make me want to learn more and get better at what I do. I'm so thankful to call them my friends and now, my wool people! Check them out at @kikucorner ! ♡ Zane #wovember #wovember2017 #wearwoolforwovember #ziemelumeitas #friends #sisters #kikucorner #knit #crochet
Day 30. Wool People I ran into one of my very favorite wool people at the North American International Livestock Exposition earlier this month. This is Benita Story of Dyed In The Wool aka @fiberpusher. Benita was at NAILE buying award winning fleeces from several breeds of sheep that she will then meticulously process into beautiful roving. The fiber breed board/display that she and Sandy set up at festivals is not only inspiring but also educational and it’s always fun to watch which breeds sell out first... Benita also purchases fleeces direct from local farms and I’m proud to be one of her suppliers. Hershey, Murphy and Woody will be headed her way in the spring 😊. She’s also started creating small batch yarns from favorite breeds and obviously, with a name like Dyed In The Wool, she knows a thing or two about color 😀. Look for her at festivals around the central US and online and check out her popular podcasts as well! #wovember2017 #wovemberinstachallenge #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday #everyoneneedsafiberpusher #imadeittotheendofthewovemberchallenge 🎉
The final day of #wovember . Wool people are the best people 💕🐑 #flyingfibers #wensleydale #knitwool #wearwool #lovewool #wearwooleveryday #wearwoolforwovember
#wovember Wool People | wool has allowed me to build and maintain friendships with some of the best people in the world. There's something special about chatting with people who get the drive to create with fiber. Thank you for all the shared wool love, @kedorsky , @treeleaves11 , and @jorjohnson ! Also thanks for not being mad at me for shamelessly stealing your photos! #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday #wovemberinstachallenge
Wool people are the best people, don’t you think? We have our priorities straight. 😉⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #wovemberinstachallenge : WOOL PEOPLE #wovember2017 #wearwooleveryday #wearwoolforwovember #knittersofinstagram
30. Wool people. I’ve been waiting for this day...these are my knitting mentors. They’ve talked me through many a project and helped me when I lost stitches, all while being my dear friends. We’ve traveled together, worked together, and knit together. Thanks @diellicious and @melisa_pearl. Now we are a province and an ocean apart, but I look forward to each time we get to knit together in person. #wearwoolforwovember #wovember #wovemberinstachallenge #knitting #knittingfriends #loisivethe #nipawin
Wovember 2017 IG challenge day 30 - wool people. 😬 This is one of my favorite Christmas decorations from Finland. She's wearing a wool hat and wishing everyone Hyvää Joulua - an appropriate end to November and looking forward to December. Merry Christmas to all you real live wool people. 😍 . . . . . #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday #wovemberinstachallenge #wovember #wovember2017 @wovemberwool
Wovember 2017 IG challenge day 29 - maker. I'm probably going to have the "crazy hat knitting lady" for the rest of my life but it's worth it when I can make fun hats like this. 😝 . . . . . #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday #wovemberinstachallenge #wovember #wovember2017 @wovemberwool
Wovember 2017 IG challenge day 28 - independent. I'm pretty sure all of these lovelies were created by independent dyers. It's fun to support them skein by skein and as the budget allows. . . . . . #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday #wovemberinstachallenge #wovember #wovember2017 @wovemberwool

#wovember 29 & 30 are maker and wool people, so what better photo to finish on than a photo of the place I worked and loved and still love, @ayarnstory. AYS is very special to me. I learned so much about the beauty of yarn, of knitting, of the wonderful people that hold our woolly community together. #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday
Wool people: a sure sign of a wool person’s house is a fleece in the driveway! (Guarded by two goofy dogs!) #wovember2017 #wovemberinstachallenge #wearwooleveryday #wearwoolforwovember
With one thing and another I've pretty much fallen off the #wovember wagon, sadly, but I couldn't miss the last prompt - wool people. There's a tendency to romanticise the yarny community: the idea that " knitters are nice" is unfounded and frankly unhelpful. (I'm not a fan of "niceness", especially not as a behaviour that women should aspire to.) And honestly, any knitter who spends much time online can attest that we have our share of spats and nastiness. Well, why shouldn't we? . But there is something about friendships formed over wool... Wool people are all kinds of people. Rough and scratchy or smooth and glossy. Tightly wound or, well, kinda loose. Colourful and a bit crazy or neutral and sophisticated. We're as varied as the yarns we love, but put us together and something special happens. Just as how amazing things can grow from simply pulling loops of yarn through loops of yarn. We form connections as hardy as any spit splice. We form a fabric that is warm, forgiving and protective. Knitters aren't special - but knitting friendships absolutely are. Thank you to all my wonderful wool people! You are the absolute bestest. #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday
Farewell to another #wovember ! It’s been so much fun to see everyone’s thoughts and experiences with wool. I feel even more like I am part of a vast tribe of wool people (#wovemberinstachallenge Day 30) Tonight my family walked into the village on a cold and clear night to see the Christmas lights turned on. As we were bundling up my son shouted “Let’s wrap our whole bodies in wool!” That’s my boy! This is some of what we wore and all the wool kept us happy and warm together. Wellness indeed! Thanks for #wovember2017 ! #wearwooleveryday #wearwoolforwovember #knitbritish #yitcmakehappy #handknit #handmade #knittersofinstagram
#wovemberinstachallenge the last gasp! Wool people. Lots of wonderful wool folk (including some well-kent faces)at my birthday party in Lerwick a couple of months ago, some other wool buddies including the very friendly Perth knitting group. I’m so glad to have such lovely wool friends to enrich my life #wearwooleveryday #wearwoolforwovember
#wovember was great to get to know more #woolpeople . I think we have all earned some extra #knitting time as a reward ;) 💚🐏🍀 . #wovemberinstachallenge #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday #knittersofinstagram #wovember2017 #knit
My #wovemberinstachallenge Day 30 Wool People. Last week I attended a sock knitting Workshop at @blacksheepwools run by the fabulous @arnecarlos and also had the opportunity to finally meet up with the wonderful Christine Perry aka @winwickmum #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday #sockknittersofinstagram #winwickmum #arneandcarlos #arneandcarlossockyarn #handknittedsocks
My, what a handsome sock! Hoping they are a pair very soon. • #Repost @knit1post1 (@get_repost ) ・・・ 21. Breed. I'm not fussy. I'm currently working on my afterthought heel for this merino blend sock. #cloud9fiberworks #altocumulussock #wearwoolforwovember #wovember #wovemberinstachallenge
Wool People: the maker and her enabler. Thank you to @keithdonaldarchitect for always wanting hand knitted things and for always encouraging me to buy more wool! 💕. #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday
Day 30 - Wool People - thank you @yarninthecity for the fun with the #wovemberinstachallenge @wovemberwool #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday
Wool people is the last #wovemberinstachallenge caption. And it must have been meant to be as today was the Edinburgh book launch for #thisthingofpaper . So here are some of the lovely wool people there, including the talented author and designer herself, @kariebookish #wovember #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday #yarninthecity
Whoo...I've just cast off the last pair of socks for our little friends in Norway, I've really enjoyed making these, and it's made me think a lot about yesterday's word prompt for #wovemberinstachallenge which was 'maker'....I love using wool, sometimes stitchin', sometimes knittin'... there's a comforty cosiness in the way it feels and touches in my fingers but also in how it makes me feel too, especially when I'm making for friends, people who own a special place in my heart and that I wish lived next door... knitting these socks for my friends Saski, Hanja and Ivo this past week has meant they've really been in my thoughts, much more than if I'd just scribbled down names and spent ages bundling around in over crowded shops looking for something to send them... #knitsfornorway #wovember #wearwoolforwovember #wovemberinstachallenge #wovemberinstachallengeday29 #maker #westyorkshirespinners #knittersofinstagram
Final day of @wovemberwool is Wool People so thank you to the @yarninthecity for sharing the wool love and for all the crazy ones who take knitting wherever they go and have been known to take knitted elephants on trips to visit the zoo! #wovemberinstachallenge #wearwooleveryday #wearwoolforwovember #crazyknitter #elephant
#wovemberinstachallenge Days 28/29 & 30: independent, maker, wool people. I have saved these up because they say everything about us @werewools. We are wool people, we care about where it comes from, how it’s cared for, what goes into producing such a fantastic fibre to keep us warm, for us to enjoy and for us to feel proud of. This country was built on wool. We should be proud of what we are good at. We are independent makers and we use what we have been given which also keeps our landscape beautiful and our chalky hills green and verdant for us all to enjoy on warm or crisp days. We are Wool People! Thank you so much @yarninthecity for providing us with a great opportunity to share our love of doing what we do with you all. It’s been a blast! #wearwooleveryday #wearwoolforwovember #yitcmakehappy #wool #britishsheep #knittersofinstagram #spinnersofinstagram #dyersofinstagram #weaversofinstagram #endofwovember2017 #night
Finishing up #wovember today with the prompt "wool people". Yes, I know I dropped the ball on a few #wovember prompts because I'm at a loss with words like "snuggle" and feel like I touched on many of the remaining ones like shawl, handmade, independent (do you know me?), and maker earlier in the month. Today I had the incredible opportunity to view the @artsmia exhibition of @jennevs , the main focus of which is six shrouds, hand woven by Jennifer with fiber from our Icelandic flock. When I first entered the gallery, I was completely speechless as tears began to fall. I couldn't help but cry because I know the energy that resides in each of these pieces, not just of the artist who worked insanely hard to make these come to fruition but also of the sheep that we have raised with the best of all we are. These shrouds represent, in a way, the essence of shepherding. We don't always see the ongoing fruits of our initial labor once it leaves the farm but to view these is to know we are making progress at shepherding our flock in a loving, ethical, and sustainable way. Not only is Jennifer a talented and intensely creative artist, she is a strong and resilient soul and someone I'm grateful to call "friend". She is one of the precious "wool people" in my life. In addition, I'm thankful for many other wool people in my life who openly share their creative inspiration and making skills with me; embrace me and my unique perspective on what it means to be a fiber farmer, specifically @salt_of_the_north and @jess_b_daniels , truly BFFs.❤ Thanks, @jennevs for a selfish photo of me with the shrouds. #fortheloveofwool #sheep #wool #fleece #fiber #yarn #woolpeople #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday #fiberfarmer #icelandicsheep
Seems Harry Potter isn't the only one desperate to escape from their Cupboard Under the Stairs 😉 We don't normally see these #woolpeople until mid December but we're making a special exception for the last day of #wovember2017 . Thanks for all the fun, folks - loved your #wovemberinstachallenge photos 👍😃 #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #knittedtoys #toys #christmastoys #christmasknitting #fatherchristmas #santaclaus #mrschristmas #wearwool #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday #familytraditions
....and finally, Day 30 of @wovemberwool challenge "wool people". We are scattered around the world. We are everywhere. Where I live in Perth, Scotland, I have met lots of really lovely people through knitting and wool and I am pleased to call all of them my very special friends. I'm glad you're all part of my life, I love you all ❤💓💕 #wovemberinstachallenge #wearwooleveryday #wearwoolforwovember #yarninthecity #madewithlove #madeinscotland #perthscotland #fairisleknitting #fairislefriday #knittersofinstagram #igknitterseverywhere
Day 30 - wool people. Lots of wool people at Dulwich Picture Gallery last year for an evening with Arne & Carlos. Final post for Wovember - had a lot of fun and a lot of thoughts. #wovemberinstachallenge #wearwooleveryday #wearwoolforwovember #wovember2017 #yarninthecity #dulwichpicturegallery #woolpeople
