I had previously failed to mention, someone that my dad and my boss's husband works with owns a lamb. Boss's husband mentioned to him that I knit and now spin my own yarn. He offered, through BH, the wool of said lamb after shearing in the sping, free of charge.
I am very excited about this. Buying wool carders will be expensive, but I think it will be an interesting and fun and educational experience. I intend to play around with some dyes as well.
Yesterday, after all this had been arranged and agreed upon, I learned that before now, HE THREW THE WOOL AWAY!!!!
He didn't know what to do with it, and actually threw it in the trash!!! I about fell over dead.
