Since it’s that time of year when the weather is getting cooler and I’ve started unravelling balls of wool ready to begin making warm scarves, hats and gloves for the cooler months – it seems fitting that this week is the annual Wool Week for 2011.
The Campaign for Wool is an international campaign that was started to promote an awareness of wool and encourage people to use this material over other forms of man-made fibre and wool substitutes.
Wool Week has events throughout the UK and also in Australia and New Zealand and you can find out more about it at the site here.
Since I couldn’t let the week go by without finishing at least one wool project, I’ve been looking through some of my favourite patterns on Ravelry and I plan to have some to finished projects to show off this weekend!
Have a wonderful (woolly) week!
