Well – after 5 failed attempts at making a nasty – ugly muppet sweater I have frogged it for the last time. I will have to find something else to do with the ‘yarn’ (and I use the term loosely). I actually think I have a use for the cream stuff and I will see what I think about for the blue stuff, but I’m sure I’ll come up with something.
I posted my Hogwarts Sock Swap package on Wednesday but I forgot to take pictures of it. It’s just as well. I was not happy with the yarn and then when I washed them the black bled into the yellow. It was much too late to start over, even if I had had other Hufflepuff yarn in my stash. There was some not small amount of swearing. The wash over isn’t bad but the yellow is not as clear and bright as it was. I will not be purchase that yarn again anytime soon and if I do I will have to remember to skein it, wash it and then set the color. Easier to just avoid it.
I also, finally, mailed my aunt her sweater. I just kept hoping to get caught up on laundry so I could wash and block it. I finally just worked over the vast piles of pre-existing laundry. I am NEVER going to get all the laundry done. I just have to come to terms with that fact.
