Thanks, everybody...I feel lots better now. I bought two sets and this morning before I went to work I separated them and threw them all over my bed. Our stupid air conditioner broke the other day and it's still not fixed so all the windows are opened and they got a pretty good airing out. The smell is noticeably less....but now my room stinks!!!
I was in a hurry and not thinking...but it's not that bad. Can't wait to get my sweater pieces washed and blocked. Now, if I can just figure out how I'm going to finish that back section of the sweater I'm knitting. Seems the designer left out a big portion of what to do, but I think, with some help from Ravelry, I'll be OK. Wish me luck!
