Fabric Prep A-Plenty

I just couldn't decide what to work on the last couple of days. I've been altering a pattern, but I just am not inspired with it yet, so I've been doing all kinds of prewashing of fabrics. I did the NE Italian Wool Basketweave and FabricMart Dark Taupe Wool Crepe in Eucalan and dried them flat, then steamed them. Both came out beautifully, with no shrinkage or change in hand. I also washed some knits, including a mottled chamois colored Slinky knit. I haven't worked with Slinky before, and I'm sure that's what this is, but of course, it's officially a "mystery knit."

Today may not be a real sewing day either, as I go to Morning Musical Review this morning, and another appointment this afternoon. We'll see.
