From Canada to Amarillo
See these goats? These are the goats that my aunt Linda visited on her trip to Canada. Aren't they furry and cute?
See this yarn? This is the goat wool after it has been sheared, cleaned, dyed and spun. Linda brought it back for me. I'm working on crocheting something special for myself with it. It's so awesome to think of all the work involved in making this yarn. Plus it is so natural. When I first rolled a skein into a ball, I noticed the variations in the yarn. It's not factory made. I find it fascinating to work with something so wonderful. When it's made in a factory it's just not the same. When it's from acrylic there isn't the same connection to the earth. Thank you Linda! I'll post my results when I'm finished!
