Wool Gathering

Yesterday, nine of us gathered in my weaving shed for a fun day of knitting, pegloom weaving, pompom making, eating and general woolly merrymaking. Despite the awful weather we had a great day in celebration of British Wool Week. We used Lancashire Farm Wool from Kate Schofield in our Knit a Scarf Knitathon, our pegloom rug and our contribution towards Eden Arts Join the Flock Project.

 An eccentric bunch, our Lancashire sheep!
More sheep yet to be added once completed, plus photos of the scarf and pegloom rug.
We tasted sheep's milk cheese and home made sheep's yogurt ice cream and biscuits decorated by Pete:
Proceeds made up from yarn sales and donations will go to help Kate purchase more fleece next year from farms in support of the Lancashire Farm Wool project.
So that is our bit for this year's Campaign for Wool!
