Caring for knitted items?
Hi I'm Lindsay and I new and just finished knitting my first scarf. I'm curious as to how I'm supposed to wash and dry for anything hand knitted?

It depends on what yarn you used. If it's wool you would handwash very gently and block it until dried. If it's acrylic you can machine wash and dry most of the time. The label that came with your yarn should give you the best way to care for your scarf.
