A Few Things

It's Wovember, everybody! What is Wovember?
"Wovember is about showing our collective appreciation of wool by wearing as much of this fabulous fibre as possible and by celebrating its unique qualities in stories and pictures throughout the month of November. Through our enthusiasm and creativity we can raise awareness of what makes wool different, and jointly create a force for wool appreciation strong enough to effect changes in how garments and textiles are described and marketed."
The Wovember site is such a treasure trove of information about wool, sheep breeds, knitting and dyeing techniques. Very easy to fall down the rabbit hole once you start browsing there!

Also, thought you guys might appreciate these knit glass sculptures by artist Carol Milne. I am beyond awed by these. Learn more about the technique.
