Bringing in the new

Several weeks ago I bought a new washer and dryer.  I had had my others for about 25 years.  When I was looking at the washers I knew that I did not want a front loader as I wanted to have the ability to open the door during the wash cycle.  I ended up with a Maytag washing machine and yesterday used the hand wash cycle with crossed fingers on several of my husband's wool sweaters.  Have to admit that I was pleased they came out clean and not felted.  Previously I washed our wool sweaters in the machine by filling up the machine, letting the items soak, and then set the machine on spin.  This time, I put the items in, added my wool wash, set the machine to hand wash and started it.  Absolutely amazing!

I also finished up the Windschief and

Bandana Cowl and ran them through the washing machine. How nice not to worry.
