Crazy About Wool Blog Hop

Yippee!  Today is my day to share my wool items with everyone.  First, thanks to Denise of Pieced Brain for the invitation to join all of the wool lovers.  Thanks also to the sponsors for their generosity and to everyone who is participating in the hop and/or visiting all of the blogs.

I have played with wool on and off over the years but really haven't done much with wool for the past several years.  So when the Pin It! pin cushion hop came along I knew I had to do something in wool and that is where Denise came in as she asked me to join the Crazy About Wool blog hop.   Seeing so many fun and wonderful seasonal pin cushions in Pin It! I knew that I wanted a seasonal pin cushion too.

The pattern is from Autumn Threads and is actually a pillow pattern but I decided to make it my Halloween pin cushion.  Spooky!  

In a previous post I mentioned I used to have sheep and dabble in hand spinning and I've made a few items from the yarn I've spun.  I can't knit and barely crochet so I had to find other ways in which to use my yarn.  I love rugs and my coarser yarn ended up being perfect.

My rug was made using the rya stitch and was fun to make.  I keep thinking I want to make another one someday especially since I still have plenty of yarn! 

Tinkle the cat was made using handspun and hand dyed yarn.  I'm not wild about dying though.

I have hooked rugs and other small items over the years as well and I have used my handspun yarn to bind my rugs.  Muffin was a house rabbit I had and I made my rug in his memory.
A mat and hooked piece that stands up that was made in honor of Honey Bunny.
A penny rug for Easter.
An Easter wall hanging.
A sewing pouch.

I have a few other items to share but I'll save them for another day.  Thanks so much for visiting!
