Bad Stitches Happen to Good People: Why I want to make a sign for my laundry room that says, "Handknits do NOT belong here!"

  1. I just listened to your latest podcast. So sorry about your felted sweater! I had a similar laundry accident involving my husband, a pair of red overalls that had never been washed before and an expensive WHITE outfit. Just a word of advice: husbands who do laundry are a rare breed. You want your husband to do laundry, just not the delicate things that need special handling. We have managed to stay married because I sort the laundry before it goes into the hamper. I pull out the hand/cold wash items, and he does the rest. Many woman make such a big deal out of laundry, their DS stops trying, and you don't want that!

  2. No, you are not the only one! And I am not even pregnant.

  3. Just catching up with podcasts today. How awful about your sweater! Bet your husband feels awful. Thanks for the podcast. I don't know how you do all it all. Hope you are getting enough rest!

  4. Another entertaining podcast, as usual. That really sucks about the felted sweater. I would suggest not knitting with 100 percent wool anymore. That way, it won't felt if it accidentally gets washed.
    Also, I think we can all relate to having a breakdown once in a while. Besides, you're pregnant, so you have a good excuse! lol!

  5. @Laura - You're right. It is a delicate balance for sure. He is helping with the laundry this weekend, so I don't think I've completely traumatized him... yet! :-)

    @Lauretta6 - Glad to know I'm in good company!

    @Jane - I'm taking the weekend to rest. Thanks for your kind comments!

    @Melissa - You're SO right. Super wash wool should be my default yarn choice. :-)
