The matching trivet was coincidentally close by and took me down memory lane. It was made by my son in his third grade class, this time of year, five years ago. It was during an involved sheep-to-sweater project coordinated and overseen by a few of us parents. It started at a sheep farm in Bodega called Bodega Pastures (near the famous school house in Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds). We hiked, joining the sheep in their far-afield Winter feeding grounds; watched a sheep get sheared, and learned about this solitary life of a shepherd that exists in a special community. We took home a freshly shorn fleece, dirty from the fields. Over the next month we set up a bucket washing line for washing the truly filthy wool, handpicked the burrs, carded the wool which miraculously became white, fluffy, clean wool. Each child tried their hand at spinning with a drop-spindle and received enough yarn to sew a wee bit as a decoration on to their knitted, then felted trivet. A deep appreciation was gleaned for all those that lovingly work with wool in all its many forms. (Swipe left to see images) .
