Green Day

I had this pretty yarn in my stash. I decided to knit up a swatch for a hat I want to make.

When you swatch, you should wash the swatch in the same manner as you would the garment. In this case, I followed the label's instructions to use cool water. I added a little Wool Wash.

"Is the water supposed to look like that?" asks Lucy.

"I know!" says Jackson. "Let's fill the Sergeant's Unobtainium bottle with it!" (In fact, the Sergeant was planning to fill the jar with water and green food coloring.)

VoilĂ !

And the swatch finally rinsed mostly clear and dried out still looking pretty, if a little less brilliant and blue-green than before.
