The Loopy Ewe in Fort Collins, Colorado

While this yarn feels amazing, it is not superwash, as I had originally thought. Ooops. Accidentally felted to a 3-month size during some rigorous rinsing & soaking.

The yarn bled like crazy and I gave up after ten or so water refills, though the water still came out deep blue. The sweater is now several shades lighter than the leftover yarn. Yikes.

This little cardi was originally going to be for my cousin Jenny’s baby W, but she politely requested machine washable items only.

Pearl flower buttons nicked from mum’s button stash. :)
