I've been doing most of my cleaning with baking soda and vinegar--it works well, it's cheap, and non-toxic.

You beat me to it, cawthraven!

I just ordered the yarn for this in "Ardour". So, it looks like I'm in.

The only KP yarn I've used so far is the Andean Silk--I used it for a sweater for myself. While it felt very soft as I was knitting, the sweater feels itchy when I wear it.

I know others have really...

Yep, I put it in the dryer too. :shrug:

I'm wondering if re-knitting it with the already washed yarn might help some--maybe it got all of its stretching out of its system? Hmm.

Thanks, Jan. That sounded like a good idea to me, too, so I tried it, and it grew even more.

I'm starting to wonder if I should just be using another yarn for this hat?

Superwash?

I posted a couple of weeks ago about a hat I'd knit for my daughter, using Lorna's Laces Shepard superwash.

Well, it helps to know I'm not alone!

I guess I'll do the same thing if I can't figure this out. It's just so frustrating, because I'm sure it's just some simple thing I'm doing wrong.
