Oh my GOD L - C is BEAUTIFULLLL..... you make pretty babies.
Miss London is extreamely pretty!! She'll have all the boys after her in a few years ha.
she is indeed very pretty! My husband recently washed my lambswool gap cape (i've had it for 5 years). It would now fit a barbie. t'was a very sad day indeed!
Thanks all :) Millmollmac - how do they do it? Can't they feel it's wool when they're piling it in the washing machine?
Miss L is beautiful! What gorgeous hair she has. I knew what must have happened as I recognised your jumper from before your honey shrunk it ;). Is he in the dog house? Mr MB is in trouble. After telling him the radiator was going to fall of the wall 2 weeks ago, it's just fallen off the wall. It's taken my mind off the accounts though so it's not all bad!
Aww,, what a gorgeous smile and pretty pose! Lucky Ms London too : D
Gah, my husband ruined my most expensive handwash only jumper by putting it in the washing machine on a 40C, I don't buy expensive clothes anymore..Your girl is so pretty x
She is so beautiful, good genes obviously ;)
So cute!! She truly loves her new outfit :-)
Miss London is beautiful and at least she will learn to appreciate good quality clothing. Has the divorce process started? I'm sure he probably thought he was doing you a favour...
Hi Leanne - I haven't served papers, but he's sensible not to drink tea I've made either ;)
Hilarious! Miss London is stunning, just like her mother. You can probably wet the sweater and reblock it, FYI. Sweaters shrink when wet, so they also stretch when wet. Might be worth a try if you loved it, but Miss London looks very comfy in it.
WHat a Gorgeous young lady!!! I like the style of the sweater on her too! Very fashionable yet not trying too hard to be a fashion statement. Of course, Mr. L shouldn't do the laundry anymore! LOL
This is sad for your sweater but lovely for Miss C. She is one gorgeous young lady! So lovely to see her. Mr. M has done this numerous times- most recently with my Got Cauldron? shirt (that I wear for each Potter film). I honestly think that after he got done with it, it wouldn't have fit my Josie. He was scolded properly and then slunk ed off to eat his chocolate. lol thanks for sharing your love x jeanie
Your daughter is so beautiful!This happened to me too. A (now ex-) boyfriend decided to put my very expensive wool/ cashmere top in the wash. I think it all went downhill from there ;)
I can see where she got her lovely skin from :)
He could make up for it with a lovely gift - he seems to do well with those. My DH and I have a deal - I sort and he washes. My father once shrunk my favorite blouse when I was in middle school - I was traumatized. Miss. L is indeed a beauty!
LOL!!! She looks beautiful. Do you think she paid Mr. L to shrink your sweater?:)))))
Aww she's so pretty!My ex put my favourite top in the wash with towels and made it all bobbly and fluffy :( I'm still annoyed about it.
The only issue with having a lovely daughter who develops a taste for cashmere from her mother is the gargantuan drycleaning bills that develop when lovely daughter becomes a young adult... this nugget is passed on from experience - because my husband did the same thing, not once, but several times. Only solution is to not allow them to do the laundry -- wait, was that the whole idea?!!!
YIKES!!!I have to admit that Hiro is the only person that ones cashmere in our home and HE keeps it away from ME.Miss C is beautiful!!! But then again...OF COURSE she would be. Just look at her mother.
SHE IS BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for all the traffic to my blog! Not sure why? x
Gosh, what a pretty little miss! On the sweater thing, my OH back in the mists of time when he was still my boyfriend had a beige lambswool v-neck I detested him in. One hot wash cycle later and it was only useful as something for the cat to snuggle up to; my plan all along. Mr L may not have been a fan of grey cashmere on his lovely wife! Just saying!! That said since OH has taken over the washing we all own clothes in various shades of grey, because he is a laundry moron, so it could be a touch of that too!
It does look fabulous on her. She didn't have her eye on it previously did she? Perhaps a few words of misdirection in Mr L's ear when she was helping him load the washing machine? :D
Thank you all for the comments. I am (reasonably) sure there was no collaboration in the sweater-catastrophe ;)@Cynthia - have you ever read the Shel Silverstein poem 'How not to have to dry the dishes'? Hmmmm :D@Anon - I have suggested that this might be a way for us to move on from this incident. He does do well at gifts ;)@Tim - I've added you to my 'favourite blogs and websites' blog list - (to the right) - that might be where the traffic is coming from. I am really enjoying your blog.
May I say that Miss L is sooooo cute? The smile is just sooooo cute! In one way, she got a new jumper :)This incident kinda reminded me of the huge (and long) angora scarf that I knitted some times ago...I was too lazy and popped it in the washing machine, followed by the dryer (you heard me right, dryer!)...poof! It was 50% shorter lol
So sad for your cashmere, but little miss is looking totally styling modelling the shrunken look :)
