Wonderful Wovember

This is a great idea by two of my most favourites knitters, designers and bloggers.  This is SO much better than camping outside in the City!  A real challenge to the frightful marketing of those who wish us to spend money on poor quality things.


Wool is indeed wonderful!  I just got done over by House of Bruar who have things called wool containing only 43% wool - not as bad as some on the Wovember Hall of Shame but still less than half wool.

It's the fluffy "fleece" jackets that annoy me too ...

But then I do get quite annoyed about many things - it seems to be growing with age - I assume this is because the world is becoming more annoying rather than that my levels of tolerance are falling.
