Time to Linen Drape-along!
I finally swatched my Rowan Linen Drape in watermelon.
I'm really glad I did--this stuff shrinks like crazy in cold water! Using US 4 needles, I made a swatch of 35 stitches. I dunked in a bowl of cold water and poof-it went from 7 inches wide to 6 inches wide. Now it's the perfect gauge for the Lola sweater I want to make, though. Cool.
No, say it ain't so - my linen drape's gonna be unwearable if it shrinks!Post a Comment
You've been sewing up a storm. Wow! Great stuff. :)
