It seemed only fitting that I give my favorite sweaters a bath today. I hate washing handknits! Wow, I’m sure that’s a profound statement. I’m guessing you all just love it, right?
Well today I tried something new (for me) and it worked really well. I used my washing machine to spin them out after soaking in the sink. I have a front loader and I thought it wouldn’t work — but it did! I turned them inside out and switched on the spin cycle and voila! My sweaters weighed a fraction of what they did before they went in. I should have dry sweaters by the morning (with brand new Isabella paw prints on them to boot!).
I’m also playing around with my blog design. I don’t think I’m done, although I am done for today. I wanted something cooler and with less color, but it’s really hard to judge colors on this laptop monitor. So when I feel like hooking up a regular monitor I’ll take a peek and do some tweaking.
I’m taking Margene’s advice and making sure I do all the things I love today. Since I haven’t knit yet it sounds like a fine excuse to do so! Make sure you do the same
