November’s naalbound hat (and me being super-goofy)
Quick post today – just to show off the new naalbound hat I made, finished off in November.
It’s purchased 100% wool yarn, a dark grey heather made of Icelandic Lopi yarn. (The wool I brought back a year earlier from my trip to Iceland!) This is the alafosslopi.
Drab green apron dress worn with my previously made dark green wool underdress
While making the drab green-grey wool underdress, I noticed how well the drab worked with the dark green underdress I made a while back. I decided to use the remaining fabric leftover from the underdess to make an apron dress too. (I don’t plan on wearing them together, instead I’ll wear the drab grey-green with the dark green.)
Dark green apron dress worn over the drab grey-green underdress
While making the drab green-grey wool underdress, I noticed how well the drab worked with the dark green underdress I made a while back. I crossed my fingers, and looked at the remnants leftover from the dark green underdress to make an apron dress with it too!
Black and white Norse wool coat with blue silk trim
While sewing up the drab grey-green wool underdress and the dried herb linen underdress I also cut out and sewed up a black and white wool coat. I got this fabric for free from a former teacher who was de-stashing! It’s not a document-able weave, but it’s basically a striped tabby weave, where the stripes of black and white yarn create “O” shapes on one side and “H” shapes on the reverse. I opted to use the “O” shapes on the outside.
“Dried herb” linen underdress worn with a dark wool apron dress that I’ll blog about soon.
While sewing up the drab grey-green wool underdress, I also cut out and sewed up another in the “dried herb” lightweight linen from fabrics-store.com. This is the same measurement/pattern as the dark green wool underdress I made a while back, because it’s fitting and feeling very nice. I wanted another in wool, but with spring approaching, I figured one in linen would also be very practical! It seems like I’ve been doing a lot in green lately!
