you'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn"
It is Sunday and it is absolutely freezing outside- bitter winds, cold and clear. It hardly ever snows when it's this cold. We also had warm temps earlier in the week, and I noticed Magnolia buds out yesterday. Nature can't decide what is going on.
Rinse twice in clean water, and look at how clean and white it is. After rinsing, I squeeze out the excess water gently and place the bags in the washer. I have a top loader, and then I run a spin cycle, no water, and it gets most of the water out. Then I place the bags on a rack, and it's dry in a day or two.
The thing is not to overfill the bags- because it makes it harder to clean. This is actually something I enjoy doing, but then I like laundry anyway. Something about the process of dirty to clean appeals to me.
I also made a little baby cardigan for an upcoming Cabbage Patch event. I always liked this little free pattern and it was easy. One thing I have to say, this is a FREE pattern and the designer admittedly says the instructions are rudimentary- she was sharing something she made, and it was a nice gesture. The number of complaints about it on Ravelry confuses me, because some people had trouble joining on the sleeves, the instructions were bad, blah blah. Holy crap- it's FREE!!!!! If you have a problem, then go and purchase a pattern for $6.00 and then you'll have recourse with the author when it goes wrong.
Anyway, the pattern is called Maile and the link is there. It's cute, and not at all hard if you've ever done a raglan.
