Chocolate milk and the knitting bag don't play well together
I was home all day yesterday with my 4yo ds because he has strep throat. He had a container of chocolate milk on the stand in the living room and he flung out his arms and accidently knocked the chocolate milk into my knitting bag. :crying:

I had the front of my tank top using Cascade Pima Silk that I was hoping to finish this weekend, and a sleeve for the sweater I'm making using knitpicks Vacation, and what may have been the start of a tubey using some silk haze yarn I got from

I washed everything as best as I could and it's drying on the table, but I still just want to cry. I think the crystal palace bamboo needle in the black yarn is ruined. The finish isn't smooth and shiny anymore. I was really careful when I was washing them, to not get the needle tips wet, but I think the bamboo one got chocolate milk on it. :(

Oh no!

I'd try rubbing that Crystal Palace needle with wax paper to see if that might bring back the finish.

So sorry....I can only imagine how upset you were. This is higher on the disappointment scale than just dropping a stsitch.

You are LIVING every knitter's greatest fear! Bless your heart!

You deserve an expensive trip to the nicest yarn store you can find.
(Don't you just love having an excuse now?)

Oh no, I'm so sorry! Not to jinx myself, but I'm sure an accident like that is somewhere in my future -- two rambunctious boys and knitting are a dangerous combination!

I hope all of your WIPs and your needles can be salvaged!
