lucky me!

my cousin, a textile artist in saskatchewan, very kindly sent me a ball-winder and a few skeins of her handspun - one of them is qiviut! that she harvested herself!! amazing. so i have two ounces of loveliness - what to do, what to do? the obvious answer is "a lace scarf" but there are so many patterns to consider... oh, life is difficult.

    How do you "harvest" quiviut? I thought is a was from an animal?

  2. easy! in her words, it "was collected by me brushing the muskox cows at the university research station. they shed a lot in the spring"

    she did get her feet stepped on a bit though!
