New yarn! (sort of)

After frogging that ill-conceived ruana and using a niddy-noddy to wind the yarn into skeins last summer, I carefully put all ten or so skeins of that Nature Spun worsted into a basket…and promptly forgot about it. The yarn recently resurfaced, and I determined to get it into usable shape soon.

    I love it when you use that imaginary language of yours — “frogging,” “niddy-noddy,” “ruana,” “worsted.” Can’t wait for the next post.

    Until then, flimmin’ in the jim-jam, frippin’ in the krotz!

    Good thinking. I usually wash my yarn in an extra large bowl or the sink. I actually have a lot of yarn to wash. I just may try this myself.

    Personally, I like the smell of CLEAN wet dog. :)
