Erica’s comment on the last post reminded me that indeed I intended to enter a skein of my Columbia yarn in the state fair. That meant a rush job on washing was needed. No problem there, some good swishing in a sink with a gentle shampoo, lots of squishing and squeezing to full the yarn together, thwacking it and rolling it in a towel and we were almost ready. Almost. It wouldn’t do to deliver it in its still damp state, but I only had a few hours to get her nice and dry.
Have I mentioned how much I love the warming drawer on our relatively new range? Gentle heat, the drawer cracked for circulation, and it was all dried up, lickety split.
I reskeined it for beauty and delivered it along with my other entries last Sunday.
I’m very happy with the washed yarn. SO sproingy!
I’ll let our readers in on what I did with the rest of those skeins very soon. I am afraid it has turned out to be a treacherous undertaking…
