Ok so apparently wool dissolves in bleach, maybe I'm the last to find out, and it turns out the dress is infact acrylic. But it looks like wool so I'm not sure I care. Anyway after I'm done with it its going to look like this:

Looky here!!

October brings aran...

I'm not sure if its wool or not. I tried agitating it in some soapy water and it didn't do much, but it doesn't feel like acrylic. I'm talking about this hideous dress I bought in a charity shop at the weekend.

I'm really excited about this new project, I'm planning to make this cardigan which was in a back issue of knit1 magazine which they sent me for free when i asked where i could buy it in the uk! And it turned up today. I told myself i have to make another bear first and that I'm going to unravel the wool properly, put it into skeins and wash it. Tiresome, but I think it'll be worth it.
