Yarn of Pee Freedom
Java decided to take out his anger and hatred of us leaving him for a week by peeing all through a basket of my stuff in the sewing room. Not only did two books get it (AUGH NUUU AMERICAN GODS!) and a myriad of half done corsets, traced paper patterns, a near-finished granny square baby blanket, loads of fabric and 11. Balls. Of. Yarn.
AUUUUGH! So I've unwound all the balls and turned them into skeins, and have washed them all in a super crazy solution including vinegar, a mild shampoo, baking powder, wool wash, eucalyptus oil and a few other odds and ends. They're drying in the bathroom right now, waiting for me to hand re-wind them in centre-pull balls.
I REALLY want to hang them out outside though to get the added anti-cat-pee agent of sunlight. But from everything I've read that's not a good idea... *flaily*
