while i was in los angeles, my cute husband helped me to reach a new knitting milestone…accidental felting.

the victim: the very first pair of socks i ever knit.

itty bitty felted first socks

they used to fit well and i wore them a lot. now the foot is less than 4 inches long. ooops! while it might be fun to blame mike for this little mess, i’ve actually washed these socks a bunch and never had a problem. i suspect he may have used hot water while i always wash my handknit socks in cold. nonetheless, it was an innocent mishap and i probably won’t be throwing even my superwash socks in the regular laundry.

farewell little beauties.
