At least to me it gives me this fancy border that looks like a finished product. Sometimes I use a reversed single crochet border to finish hats. I do this as I see hats all around this city, from $11 to 60 or so, hand made in crochet and knit, but mostly mass produced, which works by all means, but is not the same as having a hat custom made for you. So it is the birth of this Hat. Do you think it also adds a sense of a finished product?
The Hat is real nice and after getting it wet and blocking it to shape it drapes nicely. Lamb's Pride suggests to add 1/8 of a cup of white vinegar plus their shampoo, and then 1/8 cup to the last rinse, then to pat dry and lay flat. Well I did not add the vinegar o the shampoo, I figure I will tell my client to wash it in Woolite by hand if he needs to. Never to wring it, but blot it dry and allow to dry on a flat surface.
It seems that one of the uses of Vinegar is to refresh wool and cotton. It used in small quantities it will take odors away, thus the 1/8 cup. I guess it will take the smell out of clothes as well, maybe the detergent smell from clothes. I try to use fragrance free detergent. Well enough for now. Today by chance I will get a shipment of all my Ebay Auctions and some sticks from Joann.Com . I got one skein of yarn to try it out, is very cool new yarn from Lion Brand. Well thanks for stopping by.
