Technically Not A Mishap
Technically this is not a mishap in my book, but we’re going to categorize it as one for today. Poor DH, he’s been after me for eons to knit this basic raglan top down sweater. Well, I spun the yarn… lots of yarn. A beautiful light gray Corriedale. It’s gorgeous and soft. At least to me it’s super soft. This is from a fine sheep from a super fine establishment that always sells out of fleeces. I was actually thinking of getting another one as it’s been fun to spin.
Well wouldn’t you know it too itchy for him – poor thing. He can’t help his sensitive skin. At least I found out in the collar. We tested cormo on him – too itchy. Say it ain’t so… he’s so, so sensitive on especially in the neck area, he’s telling me it has to be cashmerino, which is fine, but there is a boat load of wool in the basement destined to be sweaters. Oh well. Right? Cheer me up folks.
