I cannot felt this thing. We own a front loading washing machine. Newer front loaders can be stopped mid cycle so felters do not have to experience this let down! I, on the otherhand, must patiently wait to see the final, finished product.
First I must find someone willing to let me come over and use their machine. Second I have to find a time that works for both of us. I would call a sister and say 'I MUST COME OVER TO FELT MY BAG!'. They would not, of course, "get" the urgency of this. They are not knitters. They do not know what it is like to have a bag, ready to felt and unable to felt it. In addition I have a commitment tomorrow night so the EARLIEST I could felt this is Wednesday night! That is two nights away!
I went downstairs to whine and get sympathy from Greg. Of course he would not understand. What husband would understand this frustration?? All he really said is we need to find a notary public so we can sign some documents. Nice! Love you, too babe!
Here is a photo of my bag. I must admit before I felt this....I'm not happy with the pre-condition. I thought this fuzzy yarn would be more fuzzy, more noticeable. Despite all that, my bag is begging to become the bag it is meant to be. She, too, will have to wait patiently. Maybe I need to get a second washing machine and put it in the garage for my felting projects. Ok. No. I have gone insane.
Other knitters out there, please tell me I am not going insane, that you understand this felting urgency!
