Actually, my cat is probably giving serious consideration to plopping his furry white belly right down in the middle of my Drops Asymmetrical Jacket the second I’m not looking. Or perhaps sinking one–maybe two–claws into that Berkshire Bulky…just to see what it feels like.
But the cat is most likely enamored of the Drops Jacket because it SMELLS LIKE WET SHEEP. This is not new. A lot of my handknits smell like wet sheep when they’re blocking–I’m sure most knitters have this problem. But I always forget that my handknits are going to smell like wet sheep until after my whole place smells like wet sheep! I never think to pick up any woolwash-type stuff until after the blocking and the stinking have begun. Notice the Febreze in the background? All it’s doing is helping my cat watch the jacket dry. Can someone tell me what WILL work to eradicate the wet sheep smell? Before I block anything else around here??
(Gotta love that beach towel blocking board, eh?)
