The Consuming Passion: Yarn

A friend who lives in Washington State and visits Our Lady of the Rock monastery every year mentioned to me that they raise Cotswold sheep and spin  it into yarn sold in their gift shop.   I now have in my hands (well...beside me as I type this...)  one pound of this gorgeous stuff: a beautiful colored-sheep color, sort of taupe, and it feels wonderful.  


Right now my double-pointed-needles are full of SockOne, but I'm going to have to knit up at least a square of this to see how it works.   And find more double-pointed needles.
