Ack, and did I mention, Ack!

I washed the thrift store yarn this weekend. OH boy, I was going to post a picture but I decided I like you all too much. The water was nearly black. Yick! Now it is fluffy and clean and dry and waiting to be wound.

    Reminds me of a recent yarn washing I had to do – nasty!

    Beehive is an Paton’s yarn brand. I’ve not used this particular one although I’ve used other Paton’s stuff.

    I think Beehive is a fairly old version of their yarn (at least the wool version is). I’ve seen vintage knitting patterns that specified it.

    My father-in-law used to be a wool-spinner in the Paton’s mill in Scotland…..

  2. eeewww!! Good thing you thought to wash it first!
    Your chocolate looks delish, mmmm! And your Saturday sky is lovely
