Front load washer and a hand wash sweater
We just got a brand spanking new washer and dryer from my parents as a wedding gift and I was wondering...there's a hand wash setting that says it washes just like hand washing with a gentle rocking back and forth...it's a front load GE washer. I was just wondering if anyone had tried washing a hand wash sweater on a setting like this. The sweater's not finished yet, so I can't try it out...yeah i know i know, knit a swatch and test it...but I don't think I have enough yarn to spare if it felts! The sweater's for my fiance, and I don' think she'll wear it enough if it's hand wash only. We're both pretty lazy.
