Sometimes knitting is a journey, and sometimes you find you've knit a life.

That'll put a crimp in courting...
So I'm reading this Book and in it she discusses a technique used in the Jutland region of Denmark whereby dog hair is blended with wool as a strengthener. It was considered a ward against gout. She goes on to say that the dog hair socks were prickly and attracted dogs, who would sniff them and sometimes urinate on them (while being worn). Hard to meet a nice girl in socks like that eh?
