For lack of a better title. It's bedtime. Making a meal and doing one (1!) load of laundry plays me out.
That's pretty sad.
I did manage to finally wash the swatches, but I'm too lazy to take a picture.
I neglected to take measurements, but there is definitely vertical shrinkage. Horizontal, a little, but not much.
All of the fabrics bloomed and are much softer to the touch. Even the lilac, which I thought was unbearably stiff, is now tolerable. The blue is lovely, and I will be using that yarn again. For sure.
Perhaps tomorrow at work, I will run some calcs and maybe even settle on a pattern.
I will do this at work because the huge time investment I made over the past six weeks has paid off. What took me three weeks in October just took me a day and a half.
I'm pretty chuffed about that. Made all the cursing under my breath worthwhile. Now I'm going to make it a little game - to see how fast I can get it done.
