Necessary to wash before use?
Hi everyone! This is my first try at this forum and I'm pretty new to knitting so go easy on me.
I just finished my first blanket (and did a little happy dance) for my one year-old cousin. I used washable acrylic yarn. Is it important that I wash it before I give it to her? Or is it alright to wait and have her mom wash it when it gets dirty?
Thanks so much!!!
