Felting humor
I couldn't find anything better than this. I laughed so much whenever I first saw it. Enjoy

I saw this ages ago on a crocheting board, except that a bottle of your favourite alcohol was also included in the materials. It's still funny, though. :rofling:

*snort*

The scary thing is that someone is going to try this and get really frustrated when they can't wear their felted item.

Makes me think of my first felting experiment last year....I bought this really pretty yarn, and was so excited to make the booga bag. I worked and worked on it, and finally finished it. I put it in the washer on hot, and let it run for a full cycle. It finished, and I was really excited to see what it looked like! I took it out, and I swear it had gotten a little bigger than it was before. I didn't know what I did wrong, so I decided to research felting. I discovered it has to be wool or a wool blend to felt. I went and looked at my yarn label: 100% acrylic Now I have this ginormous unfelted acrylic booga bag!
