Today was blocking and washing day!Peasy, a well written pattern with yarn that was just too precious not use. (More about the sweater later when its dry!)
Next up were two of my winter scarves, yes I am putting them away. Not because I know its Spring, but I have others and there will still be cool days, see me not tempting fate?
Last week I actually began my wool washing and asked The Farmer if he would make some sweater dryers out of window screen. I walked through to the laundry room only to pass by 2 window screens from our big sun room windows. Gave them a wipe and presto, I have 2 'scarf' dryers.
The other rests nicely on the freezer. (I didn't re-block this little alpaca shawl, I probably should but most of the time it's just inside my coat...stuffed in a sleeve. So I opted for 'drying' flat.)
Washing woollies with the new 'Soak' and 'Eucalan' no rinse wash it's just a matter of letting them soak for a few minutes and squeezing out the extra water and drying flat.
