When disaster strikes

My daughter in law called me last evening and said she had a slight problem with a sweater.
became this.
Wee Marcus is about 3 and a half months old ans she is hitting that maternal wall of exhaustion just as baby is in a growth spurt.  she didn't notice when it hit the wash with her regular clothes.  My poor girl.  

The upside is that it looks like it felted evenly.  It might not be a sweater anymore unless for a small girl, but it will be useful for something.  Possibly a felted bag? It will be kind of interesting to see and I am kind of looking forward to it.

 It was a sweater that she wore a lot and she is going to miss it.  She asked for another.  I had the pleasure last night of wandering through the stash list, thinking about what yarn to use.  I have a couple of options and we will discuss the choices in a week or two.

Meanwhile blue continues!

Hee Hee. It won't be ther first felted sweater in the world. But a simple shape so should be easy to replicate.

Ah yes I remember that phase of motherhood well! Its one of the "features" of having wee ones that first comes to mind when people ask whether I don't miss the days when they were small... because I don't!
