From Sheep to Sock
So far, I figure, that it has cost me about $500 to make this little skein of yarn.
It all started with a box of this dirty old stuff.
Then I had to buy a bunch of these things in different sizes to straighten out the mess I made when I washed it.
That gave me a few handfuls of this nubby stuff to spin on that used Ashford Traveler that I had sent all the way from New Zealand.
The resulting yarn still has enough vm in it to give you splinters but I'm determined... there will be socks.
