As I usually do on Tuesday evenings, I went to SnB tonight. It was a touch cold here tonight, so I decided to wear my favorite scarf…my malabrigo lace scarf. As I left Whole Foods, it started to rain. But I carried on. When I got home I was soaked. So I shed my layers and hung them over the shower curtain to dry. I just went into the bathroom and found this:



WTF?!?!?!?!? Where did those HUGE holes come from? They weren’t there when I left WF. They are way too big and too sudden to be anything insecty. Is it possible that the rain did this? I did wet block it when I made it, without any issues. Was it the stress of it hanging around my neck and being soaking wet?

The midsection of the scarf is intact, so maybe I can somehow save part of it. Or maybe I’ll felt the balance of it and make a pillow or something out of it.

I am really bummed right now.:-(.

I'm so sorry! :(

Holy crap! That is the weirdest thing I've ever seen! But ML is a single... maybe some of those spots were a little weaker than others, and the wet plus the weight on weak fibers = holes?

Still, that sucks. :(

whoa. those are huge!! really weird.... i agree with audrey said on all counts. maybe those spots were thinner or something except it wearing out at the end of the scarf makes less sense. its sort of creepy...
