All my woolly things spend the summer collecting dust so as soon as it gets chilly I have to give every one of them a bath or spend the fall sneezing.
Each and every one of my hand knitted items got a rinse and spin.
Some had to also go in for repairs. No hole here, just a pulled thread-thank goodness.
The whole house is hung with wet woolly stuff. It smells like a barn in here.
I have no idea why I thought it would be a good idea to wash all my socks at once but I did. I also didn't think about what the cats were going to make of all this once it is lights out. Tomorrow morning should be interesting.
