fwiw...I got the yarn from a fellow freecycler... you can go to www.freecycle.org and see if they have a group in your area, if they don't it doesn't take much to set one up I am sure.

I am the same way about the candied almond smell. I had one too many a few years ago, and now the smell of them just sends me into a tailspin!!! and I ain't even pregnant!!! lol...

Here's another tip for taking bad smells out of fabric, and it works pretty well from my experience.....Good ol' fashioned baking soda. works pretty good as a odor eater for shoes too. though I recommended to a friend of mine not to put it in his shoes. I'm afraid he'd take 3 steps and disappear okay, I know that was mean, but he's the type of guy that would laugh at that joke too.
