Zen is dead.

It shrank almost instantly and is now too small for the Goober to wear. It's in the trash. I'm telling myself it was a learning project and I learned so it was a success, but I'm too pissed off to believe myself.

I think I just trashed a batch of wool, too.

Ack! Too small for even a teddy bear to wear? Too small for a doll dress?

That's tragic. My mum washed a koigu sock I made her a few months ago...I was mortified. What I do when I over-felt is let it sit for a while so I'm no longer angry, then cut it up into fun things like flowers and hearts and stick them on magnets. After a while, you start to laugh at your own mistakes...whenever you open the fridge. (I do it alot)

Um, so what did you do to the wool?

Oh what?! No! What about a baby you know?

paige has a point--hell--if nothing else, stitch and crop the sleeves and you've got an awesome project bag!! (But I understand the total heartbreak...you really loved that sweater!)

Fish it out of the trash and send it to me and I'll make a tea-cozy out of it. Or make your own tea-cozy. Or showcase it on the blog and give a prize for the most creative use of a forshrunken sweater

How frustrating.

I would have stuffed it and made a pillow out of it. Your first hand spun project. That's tragic you threw it away.
