Question from Blondie11: Have you ever tried to shrink a wool sweater and, if so, how did you do it? I made the “Tangled Yoke” sweater by Eunny Jang out of Rowan Felted Tweed and it is just too big. Any recommendations? I don’t really want to give it away.
Review: Curls by Hunter Hammersen, Pantsville Press, $19.95 digital copy, also available from Hunter’s site.
