Wool Longies


Wool longies are my favourite thing to make. Shrunken wool sweaters aren’t garbage…they’re gold. Especially those of the cashmere variety. These ones were made for a friend and found their way back to me when I had my new one. I tend to stitch them by hand with a blanket stitch and embroidery thread and recently started lanolizing them so they can also be a cloth diaper cover. You can learn how to make sweater pants/longies here. Learn the great things about wool here and how to lanolize here.

Fibre Arts

Last weekend the men went on a fishing trip and the women stayed home with the babies and dogs. We cooked delicious food and had a fire, and went to the Peterborough Fibre Arts Festival. It was great.


I didn’t buy anything because it was a bit of a whirlwind with the toddlers aching for the slide at the park, but I did notice a used Kaffe Fassett¬†book that I snapped up for 5 bones. Score.
