How do I prevent my knitting from smelling like wet dog after blocking?
Hi! I'm a somewhat beginner knitter, I've knit a lot, but never really blocked anything I've made until recently. I know when you get wool wet, it does smell, but for some reason, that smell didn't leave once it dried, which is what I understood would happen. I bought some euclean knitting wash in lavender, soaked a scarf in it for the recomended 20 minutes, then laid flat for a few days to dry. Now I have a scarf that smells like a dog washed in lavender shampoo. It's faint, but I have a sensitive nose! haha.
Do you all have any tips or tricks for this problem, am I doing something wrong? HELP!

Thanks so much everyone!
