Clean Socks

Yesterday I put the handknit socks in the washer for a bath. They are all superwash merino wool, except for the purple ones and they are wool and bamboo, and then the far green ones are ALL wool. I thought I would take a chance and see how they would do. I ran a small load of cold water and made sure each had enough room to swish around in. They all did great. Into the drier they went, except the 100% wool ones, I didn't want to press my luck. I took them out when they were about half dry and let them finish drying on top of the washer.
I think they all look quite happy.
From the looks of things.....I think I need to go with brighter happier colors....don't you? I will do my best to change my ways.


  1. Happy Birthday!! I hope you have a wonderfully special day~one filled with love and laughter!

    As for the socks--I think the purples and the rainbow multis are quite cheerful. :-)
    Maybe you could look for a neon green? ;-)

    BTW-I recently changed my profile and blog--I kept the same profile picture though so I hope it won't be confusing to too many people. :-)

  2. More vibrant colors? Those are beautiful! But then I am a fan of the muted shades of fall and delicately heathered yarns in natural wool. Almost all my wardrobe is earth shades of one sort or another. Good work!

  3. They look great. How was your birthday?
    Have a good night!
