Embroidered Viking-style hood
A while ago I made a few different hooded capelets. The kind of garment to throw over a jacket to add a hood and a bit of shoulder-cozy for the days that don’t need a coat and tuque (knitted hat). Originally I made them just for costuming wear, but with my favourite one, I found that I was wearing it in the fall for mundane wear as well over my leather jacket.
In all of my adventures using the Maker Space’s embroidery machine, I thought one really good use for an embroidered design would be the front panel of one of these hoods.

Count this as a bit of a throwback post in itself – I actually made these ages ago… took the photos – but never ended up blogging about them!
Lightweight hand spun 2 ply wool yarn for a friend’s Arts & Sciences experiment.
A while ago a friend posted in a Facebook group – asking if there were any volunteers for her Arts & Sciences project. She was looking for volunteer spinners to take a small amount of wool, and create yarn. Her plan is to look at how different types of spinning (woolen vs worsted, plied vs unplied) would impact dye take-up.
