|ooooooooh thank you so much for the info!! I talked to the lady at my LYS tonight too about it and she said too that she has a low agitation washer and she is able to felt in a couple of turns with some jeans in the machine too.
So i finally stopped and got the yarn to make the trio bag but i am not starting it until i get a new set of 11s. I have my eyes on a set of Boyes on ebay (not boys like the typo first said cuz i don't think you can get those, legally on ebay! ) that i want to get first...plus maybe finishing one or two of the EIGHT projects that i have started!! why is it that i love so much to see what the yarn looks like on needles?...lol
