Well it's done... they went in the washer today....
They felted pretty well. Here they are drying on the dryer... if I can keep the cats away from them.
But it's true what they say, you don't realize how much you'll miss something until it's gone.
The grocery stores around here have all started charging 5 cents for plastic bags, so I've been diligently using the reusable bags my mom bought me ages ago.
But I used to use those plastic bags -- for garbage, cat poop, lunches (not in the same bag)... you name it if it went in a bag it went in a plastic grocery bag. Now I've gone and bought white plastic bags for the cat poop and garbage, and I'm going to get some paper bags for my lunch... but I ran into a little dilemma today...
What do I stuff the hogs with while they are drying??? I used to use plastic grocery bags! Oh well, these seem to be holding their shape pretty well on their own so I've left them unstuffed.
In other knitting news...The back and fronts are done on my shrug. Now they are blocking. Just the sleeves left. I was at the dollar store today and came across this acrylic Kidsilk Haze-like yarn in the prettiest shade of grey. Who could resist?
Oh and the other day I was at the Royal Botanical Gardens for a work project (I really do love my job sometimes).Can you say inspiration for some hand-painted yarn???
