sooooo I made my mommy a Danica scarf out of paton's sws.
took my 5 days of class knitting and skipping out on smoking breaks.
it's done, pretty, and itchy.

what do you suggest for softening it?

honestly, i usually knit for dirty hipsters, so blocking and weaving in ends is something they don't want (they want it to look hand knit, maaaaan (ugh)).

ANYWAYS, thanks for the advice fellow craftsters.


love everything

Yeah, SWS is a bit itchy... gorgeous though.

Try washing it with some sort of wool wash (not woolite, I hear that's bad for hand knits) or, if you don't want to spend much money, Johnsons Baby Wash, rinse but don't wring out, then lay on a plastic bag in the shape you want it to be and let it dry out.

I'm taking a break from swaps. :'(

Yes, mild shampoo and conditioner can soften scratchy wools.
