I wonder how many posts I've titled "Ooops!" LOL!
I made a nice black infinity scarf back (scroll down) in the fall. I wear it a lot. I figured it was time to wash it. I carefully put it in the mesh lingerie bag and washed it, and dried it. I had used a variety of chunky black yarns. I assumed they were mostly Patons "Shetland Chunky". Well, I guessed wrong!
Then, I noticed that the cream coloured scarf I made for myself (and a match for my mom) seemed to be stretching and getting longer. Now, I KNEW the one yarn had wool content, so I put it in with a fairly hot load and checked it a few times to make sure it wasn't matting. And wouldn't you know...no felting! It's a bit longer than I'd like for two wraps around the neck, but three wraps are a little snug. Whatever. They're quick and easy to make and fun and easy to wear. Made another one tonight :)
