  • I so feel your angst. I love that you shared it too!! The dog is going to love you forever! ❤️❤️

  • Oh dear! That is a sad story! Pretty nice for a dog sweater!

  • This happened to me once because my mom had the hot and cold inputs switched on her machine, so I completely empathize!

  • Knit happens

  • I did that with a lovely red cardigan…so sad.

  • Handbag. Someone needs a handbag.

  • My solution to an almost identical situation was to cut off the sleeves (haven’t decided what to use them for, but coffee cup sleeves are still a possibility) and put the remaining sweater on a hanger to use as a two-sided holder for my circulars. 16” and 24” on the front, longer ones on the back, from smallest at the top to largest at the bottom. Best storage I’ve ever and. Some day I may embroider the numbers, but for now masking tape is doing a fine job. Of course, if my cat would wear a sweater, it might have been a different story.

    • I meant “best storage I’ve ever had….

  • I remember my mother carefully washing a white baby garment she had knitted and scorching it by drying it by the fire. My booboo was washing all my baby woollen in the washing machine at the same time, not knowing that the temperature knob was broken….. they all felted and shrank. I felt like a criminal, all that work wasted.

  • Aaaack! sniff.

  • I’m so sorry this happened to you. I did this exact thing to my Am Kamin sweater. I mourned. Then I made a laptop sleeve and another sweater. Next time I went back to a top loader.
