so yesterday morning i trekked to joannfabrics to buy needed supplies to make the 15 pillowcases since they were having a big sale...by the way, joannfabrics does NOT open at 9am on sunday morning...so when you pull up in the parking lot and see that there is only 1 car and you think 'great! i'll be in and out of here in no time'...think again...cause the doors will be locked and you will have to drive all the way back home or sit in your car for an hour and wait for them to open - your choice...
but i digress...since i bought red yarn for some of the trim i though it would be wise to prewash the yarn in case the dye ran...after all i prewash all the fabrics...so surely prewashing yarn (2 skeins, mind you) tightly bound in a lingerie bag seemed like a good idea...brilliant even...until i opened the washer and lingerie bag and found:
note: this is only 1 skein...i'd already spent over an hour untangling the first skein from this mass...so imagine it double this size
note to self: do not ever, ever wash yarn in the washing machine again. ever.~k
*more on that later...are you curious???
