your not being a pain!!
I leave it in the cling wrap... becareful when you take it from the stove to the sink to rinse... the heat/steam inside the cling wrap is HOT... I use tongs to help me pull it off..
I raise it slowly.. I have felted yarn before trying to dye lol so I always add heat slowly now...
Knitty Gritty did a show with Scout from Scout's Swag that had a lot info... there is a website too that helped me get started and gave me the tips of laying the cling wrap out but I can't find it right now... I'll keep looking for it
