Welcome to Wool on Sundays and thank you to everyone who stopped by last week. I was very happy to have a link up from a moose knitting a scarf :D
Have you been knitting or crocheting this week?
My week has been almost wooless. I did start another pair of gloves but today was the day when we bought a Christmas tree and covered it with just about every decoration we’ve ever owned (I will show you another day) and in the ensuing chaos I didn’t get round to taking a photo. I was just thinking that I had nothing whatsoever to show when I remembered I was wearing the gloves I made for Mr RH a couple of weeks ago in a photo of a dress I made last week and didn’t have time to blog about. If you look carefully, you can just about see them! I’m quite pleased with dress. I made it from a remnant of middle weight cotton fabric that I bought for £6 because the selvedge was faded. I used the Dottie Angel frock pattern (making facings for the neck instead of all the binding). I just about scraped it out of the fabric with virtually nothing to spare and, unfortunately, I didn’t have enough left for pockets or any other fabric the same weight. It came together very quickly and easily though so I’ll certainly make another one of these one day and I’ll have pockets next time.
I hope you are having a happy December and are not too much rushed off your feet!
If you have any wool/yarn posts to share, I’d love you to link up. The rules, as usual, are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). MOST IMPORTANT visit anyone else who links.

I can’t tell you the last time I wore a skirt or dress. Your’s looks quite comfortable. Clogs, flip flops and moccasins seem to be my only choice of footwear now that I have retired. I am going to have foot surgery after the holidays and plan to finish my temp afghan when I recuperate…2 weeks off my feet then 4 on crutches. THAT will slow me down, lol. I used to wear fingerless gloves at work, but admit I never crocheted them. Yup, I loved that knitting moose. If a moose can knit, why can’t I?
Such a beautiful outfit Janine; the fabric in your dress is gorgeous! 😊
