{weekending::wool}



{washing little boy wool}

This week is very busy...we've been in a flurry of cleaning and packing; trying to prepare for a (nearly) two week trip! I have been knitting like a mad woman every spare second I can squeeze in. My sister came over for a much needed extra pair of hands, and it was only a matter of time before I sat her down and made her knit offered her some knitting since she hadn't brought any. She was kind enough to knit the second sleeve of Bobby's sweater for me! I hate knitting sleeves. I think next time I will try knitting them separately  since the problem lies in the whole heavy sweater making everything cumbersome. I love top down sweaters, but I think that in the interest of finishing them quickly I need to explore other options. I am going to attempt to keep up the posting while I'm on my trip, lots of knitting updates and short posts I'm sure, but that is the goal. I thought I would try to do a color of the day, just so that I could focus on something...we shall see if anything comes of that! I'm off to snuggle babies into their beds so that I can finish up a bit of cleaning and then curl up with Numb3rs (on netflix) and....what else? My knitting! I have three projects actively moving right now, {side note: they are very different projects, on sizes 7, 10.5 and *19* needles!!} and several more waiting in the wings....next year I vow to divide my Christmas list between knitting, sewing, and something simple like baking!!

  3. Question: how often do you wash your woollen hand-knits? I'm afraid to wash them too frequently...

    1. I don't wash them too often honestly. For the bigger children/my things, I wash them if they are actually soiled or two or three times/season. More frequently for the toddler's things because he drools and is generally sticky. ;) I just wash whenever they seem to need a freshening up, but honestly they do go a while and seem just fine!
