oh darn! Well, I followed the directions and put the mukluk in the wash. I need to check it every 5 minutes. So I checked it at 5 and it was still really big. So I just went to check it again, and the darn thing is locked! It's a front load, and it never crossed my mind that the machine wouldn't let me get in. I could shut the machine off altogether, but then all the water will stay in the machine... hrm... maybe I'll go read the washers manual.

That's one strange washing machine...maybe it likes the mukluk and doesn't want to give it up!

apparently my daughters do not find watching a mukluk felt to be fascinating. after the wash going for an hour I decided to cancel the cycle. So, I did, and it emptied all the water out. I had to run it through a rinse cyle on top of that, and of course there's still suds in it. Well, bottom line, the foot is too small! Can't say I am entirely surprised. I shoved a bottle of water in the foot, so it can dry all stretched out. I can just barely squeak my foot into it. And I will have to say that overall it looks like crap. Maybe it's cause the fur is all wet and stuck together. I hope it will look better once it dries, but seriously. The thing looks horrible. It does look like the picture, except... a little disproportionate, I guess. Once I see how it dries, then I will decide if I am going to make the second one. :thinking:

Well stink! Maybe it will look better after it dries. That doesn't stop the too-small problem, but it will at least let you know if you should bother.

And no appreciation for the felting, huh?! It's like magic!

No, they didn't care for it I will try again, I think a hat that my mom wanted. If that project fails, then I might just throw my hands in the air and surrender. Though, I will use a different setting on the washing machine next time

I hope the hat turns out well! And yeah, I'd do some reading up on that washing machine of yours...I've never had one that wouldn't let me in!

alright. I finally got a picture for you. And I thought I'd spare you the image of my not so cleany shaven winter legs . Yes- I followed the pattern to the T and mine is striped. Guess that's what I get for using less $$ yarn. No way am I spending 200+ on the foxy they had asked for :rollseyes: Now I just have to decide if I will try for a second or cut my losses. I'm leaning towards cutting my losses.
Ok, here's the picture- and please, no laughing too hard
