Hey, thanks! I'll definitely try the shoe thing. I've got some old ones that could use a washing, anyway.
It does take a lot of patience to go thru several cycles. I totally understand giving up after five or six. I guess I also haven't been patient enough. I only have been giving it about three and quitting, mostly because it looks pretty much the same after one as three. Is that typical? How do you know when to quit?
One other question, if I've done my washing and drying and blocking, but I'm not happy in the end, can I toss it back in the washer and do it again? Will I get more felting and maybe get some of the nubbies out? Or once it's done, is it done?
Thanks again for the advice!
