|WiP ~ Scary Sweater|
Anyway, the bell rang which is my cue to put the knitting up and get ready for departure. As I leaned over to put my pattern binder in my bag, the bottom of my expensive yarn dipped itself into my tea glass!! When I realized it, I just started to cry. I opened the glove box and began using the napkins I hoard in there for emergencies. I squeezed it out in 10 napkins! I was in such a mood for the rest of the afternoon. Thank goodness Pokey understands the importance and significance of what happened or else I am pretty sure there would have been an even bigger cloud of doom and gloom. He knew all I needed was an "oh baby, I'm so sorry", coupled with a hug since there was really nothing he could do to fix it. Sympathy and understanding during this crisis was all that was in order - and y'all know, it was truly a crisis.
Looking at it today, you can't see a discoloration in the yarn but I can feel a texture difference. Since I squeezed it as soon as it happened, I believe that helped out a great deal. Just like blotting a carpet after you spill tea or coffee on it. Just because it is known to stain, blotting it will absorb the liquid and give you a better shot of not having a stain when you're done. I am not really sure what else I can do at this point since it is still on my needles. I obviously don't want it to be ruined but I can't really wash it properly right now. I know I'll figure something out now that I have a clearer mind about it but so far, I'm drawing a blank.
The Knitting Gods are telling me to never spend so much ever again - got the message guys, loud and clear!
