(Now that I think of it, should I have thrown it into the compost bin? According to Katherine Whiteside in The Way We Garden Now, she says you can throw in anything biodegradable that doesn't have meat in it. In her list, wool is a possible ingredient. She says, "your entire old ragged gardening sweater will compost". Well, cotton is biodegradable! But what about the dyes? Still, wool gardening sweaters come in all colors. Hmm.)
Anyway, the finished product is all wrapped in a nice length of bias binding, waiting for my friend.
