Normally I’m superwash all the way for socks but the yarn was lovely and perfect for the pattern I wanted to use for Rob’s Christmas socks. I told him they were hand wash only. I put a yarn care label in with the socks (along with the ball band which also has the washing instructions on). And why does he think they’ve been regularly seen drying on the wool airer over the bath? Does he think I have some kind of sock-washing fetish? That I would rather hand wash socks that could perfectly well go in washing machine? Well obviously he did or else he wouldn’t’ve chucked them in the machine with everything else.
Oh well at least Owen now has a nice pair of warm cosy felted socks that fit him nicely.
