It Only Hurts When I Breathe

So here’s Will’s completely awesome Star Wars hat.


Sure I had to hold the grey yarn in my left hand and knit it Continental Style while holding the cream yarn in my right hand and knitting English style. Never mind that I carefully carried the non-dominant color and wove it above and below the color that was in use throughout the entire pattern. And yes, there are four distinct objects circling the hat which made for 20 rows of 80 stitches with NO REPEATS. No big deal. Just so it makes him feel happy when he wears it.

But perhaps…and this is just a suggestion…perhaps wearing it to lunch on Ravioli Day at school was a little unnecessary. And certainly deciding to use it as a napkin in lieu of…oh, I dunno… a NAPKIN was even more unnecessary if that is at all possible.


Any suggestions for removing ravioli stains from Blue Sky Hand-Dyed Wool would be met with gratitude and undying affection.

    Ravioli is every mother’s enemy. It’s the only thing I cannot get out of shirts and some pants! Only white’s with a clorax bleach pen! I wish you mucho luck surely someone out there knows a way! Good work on the hat it’s really cute!

    Borax says to soak delicates in a basin with 1/4 cup Borax and 1-2 tablespoons of laundry detergent for 30 minutes. This bothered me so I had to do the research. Apparently this will get stains out of wool? Worth a try?

    I don’t have any good ideas except to apply a nice glass of wine to the affected parent. If the Borax doesn’t work, try a second glass.

    oh I could weep. No suggestions here. Although I will watch and learn because *someone* in my house is notorious for getting sauce on everything! Thankfully his work shirts can be bleached to buggery, which cannot be said for wool hats.
