Within that first week, I found out about these really cool looking sweaters while at Metro Pet Market. They're from a company called Granted Clothing. Super cool sweaters.
Made from wool. wah wah
I never bothered looking into the how we get wool.
I saw the sweaters, and I knew Troy would want one.
They are very similar to the sweater that The Dude wears on The Big Lebowski. Very cool!
For the last six hallowe'ens we have hosted a costume party because Troy's birthday is the 29th.
Scott(of 'Shannon & Scott', of our adventure friends)usually comes dressed as a drunken pirate.
This year Scott dressed as "The Dude". It was rad!

Back on topic, Alyx!!
I saw the skull sweater and I ordered Troy one for his birthday.
He loves it.
I mean, it's a siwash, and it has skulls!
What's NOT to love? Again, rhetorical. I don't love that it's made with wool. I'm actually rather irritated. And a bit sad.
This is where I forgive myself for making the mistake. I have learned from this mistake.
You may wonder what the problem with wool is. I wondered the very same thing.
Thankfully, I found the answer on Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's podcast, Vegetarian Food For Thought.
The episode titled, The Shearing of Sheep, told me what the problems are with wool.
I know there are many YouTube videos that talk about this as well, I just really appreciate the way that Colleen delivers the information. Compassionate and truthful.
My next task is to commission someone to knit a vegan sweater with skulls for the love of my life, Troy.
I can do many things, but I don't know how to knit.
I'll start with Etsy.com.
