Soapy wool, March 2011.

Soapy wool, March 2011.

I was hand-washing laundry in the tub this weekend, mostly Daughter’s delicate clothing, but also a brown wool sweater. The sweater was the last item in the tub and extraordinarily heavy when wet, so I drained the soapy water before I rinsed the sweater. The way the soap looked on the sweater caught my eye and I had to take a picture.

I have a thing for texture.

That is all.


(How nice of the flash to blank out the greyish tub underneath, making it appear sparkling clean in this pic.)
