woops

I’ve been dyeing tons and tons of yarn in the new crockpot.  Well, maybe not literally tons, but lots anyway.  But the other night I left some red wool in there and walked away, and then I fell asleep, and, well, it wascooking for a really long time and the water even started boiling.  I don’t know how long it boiled before I got back to it.  Luckily the water didn’t all boil away and cause a housefire or anything.  But I’ve washed the yarn repeatedly and it still smells a little…toasted.  Woops.  I’ve got it hanging out on the porch now, airing out.  Maybe that will help?  Strangely, the texture doesn’t seem to have been affected.  Somehow this experience makes me want to knit some kind of monster with this skein of yarn.  I think it’s a guilt monster.
