I also played with my wheel, and anyone looking for one, I HIGHLY recommend the Fricke DT 160!
LOVE that! And man do I want a spinning wheel so badly!!! Maybe for my birthday. We'll see. I'm thinking if I bribe my DH with some software he's been wanting I can get a wheel LOL

Ugh!

ASF - I started working up a pattern for a norweigen pilot cap that worked with worsted and hated how it was written so I frogged it last night. I kept the trim in tact so I may attempt it again and just be really careful with the pattern and what I actually knit

How would you wash a little baby sweater to block it making your own wash? I have wool wash but it has lanolin in it and I didn't know how that would work out for a sweater. It's a cashmere/merino blend yarn.

Deb I think you can just wash in baby shampoo! I wash the tops with lanolin sometimes too though.

Me too Shelley, what are you using? I have the wool wash bar from London Frogg in Pink Sugar and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I'm too chicken to try anything else because I love it so much.

I'm REALLY chicken to try new ones too b/c I'm afraid I'll hate them. In actuality I think there is only one I don't LOVE, but it is still okay. I buy the small 1oz bottles from ENI so I can "try" a bunch of scents. I know it is more cost effective to buy bigger bottles but I like to have variety and she has SO many scents that I just feel a bizarre need to try them all.

So I've never used a wool wash bar and am afraid to try it I've only used and bought ENI liquid wool wash.

I dont like the bars. I use the liquid, and the spray. The spray is awesome to have, it works soooo much better than the liquid. You just spray it inside the woolies in the wet zone

Do they contain perfume oil or is it natural essential oils??
