the two scarfs i use when i'm out in the very cold. extra thick layers of knitting so that the cold air i breath in is warmed by the heat of what i breath out. the black one fits inside the purple one.

on the not so cold days i just wear the black one.

[later edits added:] i forgot to mention that these were custom measured around my head and also how high so they would just fit over my nose, or at least the black one was and then i said to make the purple one the same height as the black one but you can see that Mom went a bit too far so i have to fold it on the bottom or it will be up too high on my face... haha!

so nice to not have to deal with scarf ends. that's the thing i was really after i was always not having them stay put or the scarf coming loose so i asked Mom to make these and they're great. :) and for some things dangling scarfs can be dangerous so i think they can be a help to some people who have to deal with those sorts of concerns.

Pygora- a cross between a Pygmy and angora goat. They’re adorable!

Pluck- meaning you can pluck the fiber out by hand instead of having to shear (which is kind of nice but also kind of annoying because it isn’t a nice tidy once a year event to get said fiber)

Roving- when wool or other fiber is processed at the mill in preparation for spinning or felting at home you get roving 1A037209-F99B-488F-A057-A69C8BF11A1C.png

I'm lost! 🤪 😁 :idunno Love Ivy. Love the beautiful things being made. In awe of the doing...but, I'm gonna buy my sweaters, milk my goats and admire the things you do with sheep and wool. :clap. Yep. An entirely different language and skillset. :love

I sew but, not making material from the cotton grown around me. :th
