Actually not really bad knitting but a very bad knitted product.
It all began a month or so ago when someone gave me some yarn.
It was very pretty yarn.
There were two types - a black chenille one and a varigated blue fuzzy one.
I knitted them together on a pair of huge needles and ended up with a six foot long, ten inch wide piece of scarf wonderfulness.
I don't need any more scarves so I was going to send it to the Red Scarf Project.
Its not red but they will accept other colors these days.
Anyway, before I send something like this off in the mail I always give it a good wash.
Into the washing machine and dryer it went.
Here is how it came out:
The varigated yarn was wool and it felted itself!
The black yarn was something fake and when the wool felted the black had no where to go so it became a bunch of uneven loops.
One other thing... it is now about three feet long and sixteen inches wide.
Know your yarn.
Never wash something in the washing machine when you do not know the fiber.
Another one for the trash heap or for the dogs.
I wonder if Alex would have fun with it? I better not find out as the house may end up full of little bits of yarn.
Have a good week!
