I bought wool to embark on my first felting mission. I was told it loses about 1/3 of size.
Well, if I make house shoes... they will have to fit me, right?
Do I take them out of the machine every few minutes to try them on? Do I felt by hand in a bucket? (for better controll)?

The pattern says to pull them to shape and dry them. Should I use this as a lazy excuse, put them on my feet and let them dry there, while I knit away?
The input above has already told me a lot, thanks to all!
