HA! I actually did that by mistake with a beautiful Irish cable sweater. It now fits an American Girl doll.

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


JJ, You have a great sense of humor.

Label them before and after. The story is great. At least he didn't turn his underwear bright pink because he tossed a red Tshirt in with the whites and did the laundry. I made him wear his underwear.

My DH does the house laundry and his own. I do my own personal laundry.

This reminds me of a wool coat sweater I had years ago. It belonged to the mother of my ex-boyfriend. He gave me that and also a glass Heisy pitcher. I went golfing and was in a foursome. After the game, we went into the clubhouse for crackers/cheese and wine. Everyone was smoking, and when I left there, all my clothes stunk of smoke. When I got home, I threw everything into the washing machine, forgetting about the coat sweater. Well you know what happened--same thing. I gave it to he ex's daughter and told her what happened and that it had been her grandmothers. She was young enough that she could wear it. I never made that mistake again.

I remember also making a lovely all wool set for my nephew when he was a baby. It was the first sweater I made with a pattern in it. The sweater and pants were white with blue snowflakes and there were buttons for closing the crotch. They were in Iceland. Well, she threw the set in the washing machine and it would have fit a doll. I was very upset because it was a lot of work, but accidents do happen.

Sorry about the sock--the pattern is very pretty.

He must have done the wash in hot water for them to felt like that. Except for whites, all my laundry is done in cold water.

My husband does all of the laundry now. I had a couple HA last year, so don't do steps very much. I can but I don't. He is very good at doing the laundry. He is a keeper. N

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.
He tried that with me, before we'd married. I told him that was juvenile behaviour, and I wasn't marrying a child. (I'm almost three months older.) Since then, he put them in the hamper.

Speaking of putting clothes on the floor, the DH has a bad tendency to do that, aaaargh. One day I went in the bedroom and found this---and for a second or two I thought the Rapture had happened and I was left behind!!!!!
