Spinning a New Take on Pets that Shed
Talk about perfect reading for the Dog Days of summer! I ran across a post at the L.A. at Home blog about a kinda-cool, kinda-creepy use for all that pet fur wafting around the house. There are people who will take the bags of fur that your cat, rabbit or dog has shed and spin it into yarn. They'll even hook you up with someone who will knit that yarn into an afghan or shawl. This is not just some wacky California thing, it's East-coasters who run the Pet Yarn Chic Web site.
Now, I have often brushed a Yorkie-sized mound of fur from my beloved Golden Retriever. To live with a sweet-tempered Golden is to live with fur. And he's an old fella, so I completely understand the desire to keep a special memento around the house. But dog-fur afghan on the sofa? I don't know; it might make me regret all the times I made him get down off the couch.
