photo gallery round up #4

We cannot believe that this is the last photo competition round up of Wovember 2015! Here is Louise with the final round up of
images that stood out this week.

Do remember that you gain automatic entry to this competition by using the hashtag #Wovember2015 – but sadly you only have one more day! We shall be announcing the prizes and the winners in due course.

Did you read Tom’s amazing posts about Southdown yarns this week? Look at the structure of the cabling in that yarn and those glorious colours.

Spun yarn and thrummed fleece will keep @Janemaewren’s feet cosy this winter. I can feel the warmth from here!

Though I have been resisting the very notion of it, I admit that this woolly wreath, by @mereoshop stoked the Christmas cheer in me, just a little bit.

This Krainer Stone Sheep lamb belongs to the small flock of @wollhexie. Very sweet!

So, are you taking part in @clare.devine Tea Party KAL yet? You should, the Tea Hats collection is simply amazing; and if this wasn't good reason enough, there are fantastic prizes to be won for KAL participants. Including a skein of my Phileas Yarns Wanderlust DK. I've made myself a Oolong hat with it, in the Acropolis colourway. I love this hat and I love this colour! The KAL runs until the end of the year, plenty time to join still and treat yourself to a hat or gift knit for loved ones… (Details on @clare.devine bio) #phileasyarns #knitsharelove #teacollectionhats #knitting #knitstagram #knittersoftheworld #knittersofinstagram #wollyhat #hat #makeitwearit #wovember2015 #handdyed #handyedyarn #indiedyer #dyersofinstagram #yarn #yarnaddict #oolong #oolongtea #pompom

@Sylvielabellevie is combining two of my favourite passtimes in this image – tea and knitting with wool!

@womenwhoweave’s image of colourful weaving is just a joy!

We're into the final week of #wovember2015 (sniff!) and I've kept the best 'till last! Thanks to dear @harpstone, this ball of wondrous woolly goodness was waiting to welcome me back when I got back to Dorset this time last week… The pedigree Poll Dorset sheep whose fleeces were spun into this DK weight yarn were reared & sheared here in Dorset on the beautiful Isle of Purbeck. It seemed fitting then to "take the yarn out for a walk" along a stretch of the South West coastal path before I get a chance to play with it properly later this week for the #knitbritish half of my #breedswatchalong! (More info about this yarn can be found via @harpstone). #exploredorset #purbecks #isleofpurbeck #thisishowilocal #howilocal #woolwhereiam #polldorsetsheep #breedspecificwool #localwool #localbreeds #knittersofinstagram #instaknitters #yarnlove #fibrelove #fiberlove

@la_laniere’s image gave me a bit of a lump in my throat – a very local yarn snapped in the local landscape of the poll Dorset sheep. I hope you enjoy swatching!

Jane Dryden, from Home Farm Wensleydales, was back at Wovember last night in conversation with Felix. I love this image of her Blue Faced Leicester rams.
