hey Kidz! What day is it?

It’s WashDay! Time to take that honkin’ mistake project and send it to the TUBS!

To go any further on my Shazam Cardi, I’ve got to farm back into a couple of leftover pieces for their precious yarn.

I *unwind* the piece into a center-pull ball using my little ball winder. Then I make skeins from the balls, using my swift and loosely tie in 3 places so they don’t seperate in the next step…

Now I fill my kitchen sink with warm water and 2 tiny drops of plain dishsoap and soak, rinse with plain water after I’ve seen the loopies relax, then dry flat…

Just for fun, I added a couple of skeins of Fuschia variegated wool from a trial project that didn’t turn out. It’s now destined to become a cowl

I wore one in Low Teen Temps all day yesterday working outside and with it up around my ears, didn’t even reach for my hat!
