Wool Day at Villa Cooper

On Saturday we had a special Wool Day at Villa Cooper. In spite of the rainy weather it was a success, many interested people came to see our demonstrations of various techniques like spinning


or knitting or crocheting. I was there with my two socks at a time, or alternatively two mittens at a time.


The real attraction was a wool fashion show. Our own members were showing knitted and crocheted garments and accessories made by our members and available right there.


These are designed and knitted by machine by Riitta Liski



The silk scarf above and the little bag below are by other members.



There was  something flattering for every model, and perfectly matching accessories were all from our shelves.


Someone with an eye for detail can really create perfect outfits.


Here is one of the hand knitted sweaters combined with a machine knitted skirt and a hand dyed silk scarf.

I hope you enjoyed the samples of our show. Our Facebook has more pictures from the event.

We have had the first night frost, and the need for fingerless mittens is here to stay. I knitted one pair in dark grey for those who don't want colours


and then I developed the idea of Aino'S mittens and created Aino S 2.0 fingerless mittens for the modern girl who needs to fumble with her smart phone anywhere and in any weather:


Enjoy your new week!

  4. So many beautiful handmade things but very talented crafters. I forgot to say in the previous post comment how much I love your blue and white quilt. It's an award winner to celebrate Finland's special anniversary. :o)
