Regular laundry aside, I've had a basket of handknits sitting in our bathroom for the past two months.
I came clean (ha!) about it yesterday to a friend who chuckled at me. I haven't been knitting, because I haven't been washing. And if I'm not finding the time to wash the handknits, then why am I knitting? It's a bad circle of thought for a knitter to be caught in.
After confessing to my friend, I confessed a little bit broader. Here was my IG post.
The feedback I got was really lovely. That these handknits represent alot of love. That they are precious. Wash them a bit at a time. Make a 'pattern' so I don't need to measure each time. Buy superwash.
Thanks for all the encouragement friends! I needed that gentle push.
