Some housekeeping…

A few official type announcements to make here.

Wovember Brooch Sale

WOVEMBER brooches are now on SALE, with a 15% discount. In order to avail of the discount, you need to enter the coupon code in the right place during the checkout procedure, otherwise it is not possible to apply the discount. The discount coupon is DECEMBER2012 and there is a tutorial explaining how to apply this discount code here. The sale will last for a limited time only: and the shop will close on 5th December 2012, so there are 5 days to get your orders in! Additionally, I will enclose one free extra brooch for every five purchased, in a limited edition, unlisted design.



As you may have noticed, the quantity of prizes for WOVEMBER competition winners has grown throughout WOVEMBER, with people generously donating extra woolly goodness throughout the month! It will take us a little while to organise our thoughts on the wonderful blog-post entries submitted to WOVEMBER – and also the amazing photos – and to allocate prizes, so stay tuned for further news on that front.

Wovember – The Book?

A number of people have commented that all the information collated here might be organised into a book format, and that being able to access the information TEAM WOVEMBER have assembled through a nice physical book with big shiny pictures and real paper pages might be a future project. A huge amount of time and administration would be required for agreeing terms and copyright with contributing authors, organising the book into a pleasing and well-indexed layout, etc. However if you would be seriously interested in buying such a book and indeed if any publishers experienced in producing a book along such lines are reading this – we want to hear from you. This is a very preliminary enquiry to gauge interest.

Wovember – Finding Articles

On the theme of navigating the huge quantity of information now housed on the WOVEMBER website, we have created two handy navigation menus – one which uses the tags from last year’s WOVEMBER posts, and one which uses the tags from this year’s posts – to hopefully make it easier for you to find posts written in relation to various Wovember themes.


Hopefully these two menus will make it easy for you to find anything you are especially looking for on the WOVEMBER website if you missed anything in our furious blog-posting bonanza! If you have suggestions for how we can improve the navigation of the site even more, we would love to hear from you and will do what we can to address the usability of the site.


Finally, a massive thank you to everyone who has contributed to WOVEMBER this year… for tweeting and blogging about WOVEMBER, for submitting photos to the contest, for writing blog-posts, for wearing more WOOL and for helping us celebrate WHAT WOOL IS. The whole celebration is only possible because of you.

From TEAM WOVEMBER – One Massive big woolly THANK YOU X

  1. Thank you for all of your hard work! It has been an amazing adventure! Your talent, knowledge and enthusiasm is fantastic! You have made my knitting experience even more awesome! Three cheers!

  2. Definitely interested in the book! I realize how much time and effort and treasure goes into making a book, but you have a great team there already. Kate has just brought her new book to market; Susan Gibbs over at JMF has launched a new magazine thanks in part to fiber-fans’ contributions to Kickstarter. Both deserve a good long holiday to rest and regroup, but a release date to coincide with Wovember 2013 should be do-able.

    Now I’m off to read the 2011 posts – I hadn’t discovered Wovember back then!

  3. Thank you for all the work you put into this. I chanced upon this site when I searched “wool” in the WordPress topic search and I’m so glad I did. The book sounds like a lovely idea. More ways to inform people. Keep up the good work!

  4. I would certainly be VERY interested in a book. I’m just doing my preliminary research into dissertation topics for my degree, and would very much appreciate having all the wonderful Wovember information – particularly the history and knitting – bound together and indexed.
