Soap Sweater Tip

Earlier this week, I used some scrap of "Lambs Pride" in a bright pink color and a bar of glycerin soap from Bath & Body Works to make a soap sweater for my great-niece Grace, who is 3. I had promised to knit her a surprise - and she was really excited. We explained to her that it she could use it in the bathtub, and it would get all sudsy, but it wouldn't be slippery and fall out of her hands.

She thanked me numerous times, and I even got hugs!!

Last night, when I was knitting another, I did my usual routine of knitting for a while, then "trying it on" the bar of soap, knitting for a while.....and when I got to the point that I was going to pop the soap in and close up the top, I realized what I had done.

I forgot to take the plastic wrap off of Grace's soap before I closed it up.

Keep knitting!!
