The Scarf... Seems I am susposed to soak it in lukewarmery Water, Spread out in the Barth with Softener and deterent stuff(The Scarf, not me - I've already done the Bath bit for me, but without Softener). and stretch it out on a Bath Towel. (The Scarf, not the Bath), but I'm "Between appointments" (Hospital nursey, then next, Diabolical Blood tests). So Scarfery got a bit delayed, So I'll have to go out in the cold scarfless back to err, whichever hospital it is. But I will add stretching it as you advise (The Scarf that is), So I need something even MORE exciting than meeting a knitted sparkly Rhino. What colour? Isn't the Pink Rhino a Night club?

Been Busy.. scarf Mending. I think it's what us Techy people call "A failure". Firstly this is the instructions that a Nice Lady on Facebook sent me: www.woolme.co.uk/blog/merino-wool-throws-how-to-unshrink/ The result is that The Silk side is still much bigger than the wool side. I can't remember it was originally thus; nett result Puckered edges and extensions of the silk at each end. It is currently laid between two towels on the Bathroom floor.
It did seem a bit shorter, but that is probably imagination, but nevertheless, it is definitely "odd". I cannot remember ever laundering it (perhaps it got wet in the rain), And the discolouring in the water I used tonight, it shows no sense of having met washing before. it just remains with the Silk side looking screwed.
I'm orf to grow my hair (wonder what Pills Matron may have) - Oh Hell, gotta phone her for a nappointment in the morn.
