Well at long last, after doing lots of other bits in between, I finished mine last night.
Put it in on a 40 (this time I did just what it said!! 1 bag to be felted, one towel, well Josie's PE kit) In the past when I have been felting stuff I tend to put it in with everything else I am washing. Lesson learnt, it doesn't get to move around enough that way.
It had felted a bit but not really very much at all, so....gulp........stuck it on a 60!!
Came down this morning and was really really chuffed with it. In fact so so chuffed I am going to make more for my sisters for Christmas.
I am also learning to spin, how utterly amazing would it be to spin the wool to make them.
Oh well of to work, I will tell you about the job interview from hell soon. I knew straight away I wasn't in with a chance when the first thing she said to me as I sat down was, "you seem every so young"!!!!!!!
Ha Ha!!!! My children wouldn't agree, Mum's 36 and is SOOOOOO old!
So I have just got to say thank you Lyn for the loan of everything (and for being so patient) and to Doodleallysally for letting me use you pattern. I love it and it is so easy and enjoyable to knit.
Have a good day.
