Today I wanted to do a wrap-up post of my November happenings! As I wrote a few days ago, November has been one of my most productive months! What with all the work for Wool of the Week and the SRA projects, along with Christmas presents for loved ones, I’ve been keeping busy. I worked my last several commissions which were all Inkle weavings, then kept on weave weave weaving as I just get so inspired by colour that I have to start more projects 😅
I finished my first test cardigan. I prefer wearing cardigans over pullovers just because I don’t like having to actually pull a pullover over lol. I made a few pieces of gem stone bead jewelry to go with it, and it went so well with my Christmas Santa hat I had made a few years ago in the same brand of yarn.
I made more tallow products—this time a body butter with shea butter, coconut oil, and vitamin E oil. It was so soft after I whipped it.
I made 9 yarns for a Christmas project for my family. Every year I make my immediate loved ones a new hat, and this year I decided to handspin the yarn and hand knit them (I usually loom knit them). The yarn was a task, and unfortunately I will need more white for the other four hats—not that I lost yarn chicken, just, I had enough for the first and so I started that one. And finished it! And look how cute!
I made a non-toxic stuffed pillow with discard wool. It needs more stuffing, but I love it!
Then the last thing I finished was this beautiful bitty bitty sweater. How I love it.
Thank you so much for reading my blog today! Much love! —August Lee
