Pull it . . . and it will Grow

Not that! I'm talking about clothing care and sweater snags.

As winter wraps up, things start to happen to our clothes, things like sweaters snags. Don't get unraveled about it, just resist the temptation to pull it because if you pull it . . . it will grow.

Here’s what you should do.

1) Take the sweater off and turn it inside out.

2) Use a safety pin to push the yarn back into the fabric.

3) Gently stretch the area around the snag to tighten the other yarns surrounding it. This will help hold it in place.

If you can still see the sweater snag, it’s time to take it to your tailor. If you're one of the few people who actually saved the additional yarn that came with your sweater, take that too. Now, you know what it’s for!
