Care Labels for Red Scarf Project

If you're looking for the care tags, the completed versions are indexed here.

I have heard from the guru of gurus (Norma) that she thinks I covered the basics. And naiad_kitty added something so perfect that I put it on every label! The draft is here. In a few days, once I'm sure we're done, I'll make a full sheet of each kind, plus a mixed page, and post separate PDFs for all.

Original Post

If you have Adobe Reader, please take a look at this page. I'm creating sheets of care labels to go along with the scarves. I figured since I was already making them, I could convert them to .pdf and share them. I plan on doing a full sheet of each kind of label, plus one mixed (as shown).

What care combos are missing? Think about your stash and the yarns you would use to make scarves.

Thanks in advance!

ETA: Yes, I totally agree that they will probably not wash them, ever, and that something that should be machine-washed (should they ever care to do so) is preferable. But the organizers suggested care labels (not a requirement) and I'm trying to cover all the bases for the scarves I'm knitting. The kids can throw the tags away and do whatever they will do. (When I was in college, I actually enjoyed doing laundry and spread sweaters, etc. out to dry.) Er, I didn't mean this to sound harsh or anything, although on reading it, it could come across that way. Not intentional! This is secondary (at best) to the real topic, which is getting the scarves knitted!
