My son has always helped his wife with all household chores. But the day he felted his wife’s new cashmere sweater he told her he would do anything else that needed to be done but no more laundry.

Had to smile at first! But, my second thought was.....they would make lovely Christmas stockings. I do like the small one being DH 😂. Gotta love em.

Exactly what I thought.
My husband did the washing (many years ago) he put a jumper that mum knit my son in the washing machine then the dryer, it stretched so much. Son wore it next time to visit mum, she asked what happened and he told her, exactly what I said"that bloody Laurie put them in the washer and dryer". Lol.

Well, you can hang them as Christmas stockings - the small one for him, of course.

My darling has only learned to put his dirty clothes in the hamper. He even carries it down to the laundry area for me! More than that I can't imagine him doing.


That's better than my sweetie, his dirty clothes get as far as the floor.

PS As far as the socks go, I agree superwash is the way to go.

I have had even superwash wool shrink in the washer, especially if it goes in the dryer. My solution is that all machine washable socks are put in a lingerie bag. Anything in the lingerie bag gets hung to dry. I have two or three pair of socks that get hand washed & put on sock blockers because I know they will shrink and have slightly. The upside is that they are now some of the warmest socks I own.

Funny story. Tell him he made our day! I like the Christmas stocking idea though, very brilliant!

I have had some of my hand knit socks shrink even washed in cold water and hung up to air dry. My daughter has a friend that wears a 5 1/2 size shoe. She loves my shrunken socks!

Your husband does laundry! That is worth a ruined sock or two.

Some husbands are willing to do the vacuuming, if asked.....
************************************************************************************
After retiring, Joe does nothing except sit around the house all day.

Fed up, his wife says, "Joe, you could do something useful, like vacuum the house once a week."

Joe looks at her for a moment and says, "Sure, why not. Where's the vacuum?"

Half an hour later, he walks into the kitchen to get a coffee and his wife says, "I didn't hear the vacuum running. I thought you were going to use it."

Exasperated, Joe says, "The stupid thing is broken. It won't start. We need to buy a new one."

"Really", she questions, "Show me - It worked fine the last time I used it."

And so he shows her

I don't know if this works or not, but several years ago I came across information on how to get back to the original size on shrunken items. It was to use baby shampoo and soak it in a solution of baby shampoo and water. The lanolin in the shampoo replaces the lanolin that was washed out and then the fibers relax back to their original shape. It is worth a try and if you do, please let us know if this actually works.

Also, there used to be a product called "Relax" or something like that could undo shrinkage.

Amazon shows a product call "Unshrinkit". No idea if it works, but for use on wool and cashmere.
