Hmm.... I'm in a bit of a pickle.
I've read here that some people here like to wash their gifts before sending them on to the recipient. I have to say i agree with that philosophy, unless it's for a baby and i figure the fussy mothers can wash it to their specification (since all new mothers are fussy!
But that leaves me with a problem.... How do you wash a gift for an adult reciepient? Do you use special soap? or will Woolite do?
So here's the deal... I have just finished an illusion knitting scarf
and i'm currently finishing up an Entrelac Danica
The illusion knitting scarf curls quite a bit
so it definitely needs to be blocked. The Danica needs to be straightened out a bit, but i'm afraid that blocking it will mess up the Entrelac woven pattern.
Any ideas on what the best way might be to wash and block these two items? They're both pressies so i want them looking their gorgeousy best!
P.S. They're both made out of Alpaca/Silk - one is KP Andean Treasure and Andean Silk, the other is just Andean Silk.
