    Oh no! Definitely been here, at least ballet gives us the opportunity to wear shrunken sweaters right?

    Oh no! Will it fit the baby? I know people who make felted wool leggings for their littles starting out this way, although intentionally.

    Happy New Year!
    I knitted a red sweater that I liked to wear at home on cold days. It shrunk to an unusual kid size when I accidentally put it in the dryer. I donated it. There might be a person who fits in it perfectly.

    Oh wow! *cringe*

    A friend of mine’s housekeeper used to do this on a regular basis. She’d just throw clothes in the dryer, put it on “high” and the longest timed cycle. Don’t try it with silky rayon blouses and such, they come out crunchy and feel like fibreglass insulation.

    Omg uguyz, I have one just like it! ‘Cept mine is beige. And least yours is a color of some sort. Mine seems to be competing to both fade out of the universe both in color AND size.
