Yeah, I think I'm going to have to ask b/c I definitely think it depends on the vegan. I once had a vegan roommate who ate honey. So the first time dh's son visited us right after we were married, I made this big pot of what I thought was vegan soup only to find out he couldn't/wouldn't eat it because it had honey in it!
He has relaxed somewhat on the honey issue, depending on whether it comes from a "humane" source or not. So I guess it would depend on whether or not I can determine if the wool came from an ethical source. Its Manos wool, so at least I was helping out a women's collective by purchasing it, so maybe that will be in my favor!
Meanwhile, I finished the hat earlier tonight. I must say it looks pretty great! Will post pics when I can. If dss won't have it, dh and I may be fighting over who gets to keep it! I want him to have it, and he wants me to have it (he thinks it looks good on me, even though I knit the man's size and picked out what I thought were more masculine colors).
Now I'm back to knitting my NEBB and may be redoing my toddler hats soon. I made mistakes with the shaping of both of those and think I'm ready for another go at making them right. I may branch out and try doing stripes for the first time ever! :D
