A few nights ago, I started knitting a new charity hat, but it was looking too big so I frogged it.

I started again, using a different gray than I had originally used.  After a while, I started sneezing nonstop and my nose began to run.  

I realized that the yarn (reclaimed from a thrift shop sweater back in 2006?) hadn’t been washed since I bought it (and maybe not even then!  I don’t remember!).  As soon as I switched to the purple yarn, I was ok.  The offending yarn is currently taking a bath. 

What an inelegant reminder to always wash thrifted sweaters before reclaiming the yarn!!! Ah-choo!
