Sometimes you get it right, sometimes you don't
The blue fingerless gloves were a quick knit up for my neighbor. The raspberry were supposed to be for my other neighbor. Both women have been really kind and helpful to me this fall. Oh dear. The blues are great. The raspberries are too big, in case you cannot miss the obvious, sorry. I've tried felting them TWICE.
We are trying a third attempt and I may have to throw them in the dryer too.
We know this yarn felted into a fantastic purse Al made last year that became mine. Is the ribbing the problem? Is the Kookaburra soap just too soft for this yarn?
I can only post this problem, because I read another blogger's mishap post today. Her sock problem admission, made sharing this misknit much easier. (thanks elizabeth, you know who you are, I won't share the link for a innocent mistake you made!) Suffice to say, I'd wear two different shades of the same color sock......
Please leave me your email or blog so I can thank you for your comment.
