I had a good trip to Goodwill the other day. Although I expected sweater season to be over, and my luck hadn't been good lately, I made several good finds. On top of that...it was 50 percent off day!

Another sweater that found its way into my cart was this blend of 40% merino, 30% viscose, 20% angora, and 10% cashmere from Express.
I found this great J Crew 100% wool sweater in the men's department (always a good place to look if you want more wool for your money):

Backstrap Weaving – What is a Loom? - I am on the road and have finally had the chance to hold my new dvd, Operating a Backstrap Loom! I filmed this last November and returned to Bolivia before...
