Wool Mule

My husband went to the US and this is what he brought back for my France wool-loving sister....

Yes, indeed, it is a feed bag filled with wool... from her friend Maureen who has a farm in West Virginia. As you can see, it's a rather large bag (especially when put next to a 5 year old girl and her Barbie suitcase).

The good news is that it is much lighter than it looks. The kids had a good time pretending each was a muscle man/woman lifting this bag above their heads. We all had a good laugh.

Ah, the things we do for our sisters....

How did it get through the checkpoints - that's what makes me curious! You're right Auntie M, the things one does...(smile) Terry in SF

Ahem, I imagine she is a knitter? If not, then "What the heck?"

GC, He packed the bag in our largest suitcase.
Terry, I guess my husband did get some questions because they went through the bag and wondered why a feed bag was not heavier.
Sammy, My sister is a huge knitter. I have now added her link. She lives in the south of France.
Philip, Thank you!
