Ok whilst on my search for a suitable image to put on the front of my disk of knitting patterns, I came across this book.
Now it doesn't sound very appealing to make a sweater out of dog hair does it? It made me think back to when I had a dog, she was a collie cross, to be honest the vet thought she was like a bag of allsorts.
She had this remarkable white speckled coat which was so soft and fluffy, it would have been perfect for spinning, I think.
We used to dread the time of year when it was time to cast..... I could have stuffed a few pillowcases every-time she got brushed. come to think of it the rabbit could have contributed to the mix too.
I think I really missed a good opportunity back then, if only I'd had the time and the interest in that side of being a knitter!! Although I don't know what the dog would have to say about it.....lol
