winter woolies

The snow has melted! Is it wrong, but I actually miss it? Don't get me wrong, I love spring, LOVE spring. But, it's just so early, I'm suspicious that we'll get slammed with snow in April. We'll see...

Regardless of the lack of snow, a pile of worn knits has piled up, in need of a good cleaning. Lately, I haven been giving our winter woolies a wash using my Twig & Horn Wool Soap and have to say, I love it. The clean softness and the aroma (my scent is Lemongrass) is creating more comfy, cozy knits.
