|Wool/Angora on cone|
Partly environmental, partly saga and apparently very entertaining, this is a quest of the magnitude of the original Moby Dick - but much more readable. In fact this book may make National Rubber Ducky Day a real cause for celebration. Follow the link to read my post on that particular day.
My friend Julia has just returned from a trip to Morocco, which she had organized for Fibre enthusiasts. Julia said that she was amazed to find one of the group, a knitter, knitting with a yarn that we had carried a few years ago. It was a fine blue laceweight wool and angora blend which this person had bought on e-bay. Well, imagine the trip that this skein has taken. First it came to Infiknit on the cone. Then we wound it into skeins and overdyed it. A shop ordered it and it left Canada, possibly going to the US or another part of Canada. Then it was put up on e-bay; bought by a knitter, who took it to Morocco. The knitter had decided to knit a shawl with the yarn; however, after one of Julia's wonderful beading classes in Morocco, this clever knitter decided to add beads to her shawl and Voila - we have Rainbow - wool & angora - knit and beaded into a lovely shawl!
