Many die hard knitters have begun thinking of November as Wovember. This link will take you to a more in depth look at the appreciation of all things wool. There is a Ravelry group you can check out that has many responses to what knitters are making to join in with the Wovember theme. Many interesting projects there.
From this site sponsored by Kate Davie, Felicity Ford and Tom van Deijnen:
Wovember is about showing our collective appreciation of wool by wearing as much of this fabulous fibre as possible, and by celebrating its unique qualities in stories and pictures throughout the month of November. Through our enthusiasm and creativity we can raise awareness of what makes wool different, and jointly create a force for wool appreciation strong enough to effect changes in how garments and textiles are described and marketed.
Joining in with Wovember, my scant offering will be the knitting of the Shetland Heritage Hat (pattern by Leslie Smith Designs). I substituted the colors of the Shetland 2 play yarns, using a palette of muted shades of lilac, blues and greens with a splash of dark purple.
This is well worth a listen, Click on the arrow for a BBC short radio feature by Felicity Ford in conversation with Richard Martin, proprietor of Cotswold Woollen Weavers.
Lastly, this is one of our dogs wearing TWO of the Kate Davies designed coats (A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing) since it was chilly out. And there are other photos from my rocking chair out back just because it was such a lovely evening.
