Five books on Santaria, Voodoo, and Hoodoo.
 
One book on knitting.
 
One Moth Rearing and Identification book
 
And one audio book on The Hobbit.

  1. Hi there! I just found your blog through the videos you posted on youtube (the hound combs). I was wondering, since you seem to be familiar with starting the wool prep process from scratch, or mostly from there, if you know what the quality of the wool is from self-shedding sheep. See, I'm a knitter, and I've been resisting the urge to make my own yarn for a long time because I don't need another obsession. My husband will back me up on this.

    But one of our friends here has a farm, and on that farm he has a self-shedding sheep (easy to read, not so easy to say out loud!)

    He also has a llama.

    So i've got ideas now. Free wool means I can learn to spin. I bought a cheap spindle, and I'm going to visit my friend and clean his yard of all this wool. I'll wash it and card it and try to spin it, but I'm wondering if there's a minimum staple fiber length I should look for or something. I don't mind *ahem* really natural yarn, or even somewhat scratchy yarn. They can't all be BFLs.

    This has gone from mere comment into long letter now, so if you need any more details or if you just want to tell me you have no idea what I'm talking about, pop over to my blog OR send an email to sarkasmo at gmail dawt com.

Thanks for the feedback! Most comments will be published right away except for you pathetic spammers who's messages will never see the light of day. If you are offended by having to fill one a "prove you are not a robot" form, my goodness...chill out! It takes two seconds to do and saves me a ton spam to have to filter through and it takes two seconds, MAX. If you are that easily offended, maybe you should simply not comment, and seek some counseling.
