Y’member my Best Damn Shawl in the World?
and I added an additional border and kept it on my chair for TV time. It was just right for me, and looked good on the back of my TV chair. And it was all done in superwash wool to make it “easy-care”.
After a couple years or so I figured it was time for a wash, and I was doing a small-ish load of shorts and jeans. Well, guess what? It apparently was NOT superwash. Oh sh*t!!!!!! Apparently one section caught on the button of my jeans, which resulted in a most vulgar and suggestive bulge, just left of the middle, along with all sorts of unusual puckers and crimps. damn damn damn!!!! It was still moist, so I pulled and stretched what a could and now have it hanging by the midline along one of my drying rods, with weights clipped to the end to try and encourage it back into usable shape.
By the way, the pattern for the Best Damn Shawl in the World is combined with the Broad-Border Shawl in a combo pattern. I thought it had been posted to the Patterns page, but I don’t see it. I will dig it up and repost it later today.
