Alas, the Hat that will last many years and The Toddler Scarf fell victim to the one-two punch of puke and hot wash. The little girl was unwell while out and about, causing her to come home with a bag of clothes covered in puke. And father did what any sensible person would do – put the whole lot in the washing machine. As mum was silly enough to make toddler items out of hand-wash only wool, this is what we ended up with.
I’ll admit – I was gutted and may have even shed a tear over the loss of the hat. But there have been lessons learned as a result and should I make another, you can bet it will be washable wool.
