As I mentioned, I've taken up knitting. I learned the basics just four lessons at Stitch House Dorchester, and after that I started using YouTube videos and Pinterest patterns to make gifts for everyone in my family. This holiday season I tried my best to avoid commercial Christmas. It's far more pleasant to sit at home knitting than to be standing in line at the mall. My challenge has been to find to vegan yarn, since most of the local knit shops sell wool, angora, merino, and various other blends. I did some research on the wool industry, and I'm not interested in wearing a scarf that represents sheep being tortured. There are plenty of alternative fibers - it just requires some extra leg-work. Fake Sheep is a blog about vegan knitting with lots of info about various alt fibers. As always, living the veg life makes things a bit more challenging, but it's all part of being the change.
Have yourself a vegan little Christmas.
