You are welcome lol

I have just had a go at felting in my front loading washer and nearly flooded the kitchen.

I managed to get him out.

His front is felted but the back is not done yet so i may have to put him back in.

ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO SEE THE WOOL UNDER THE FUR?

I was doing it wrong. His bottom got weirder and weirder looking and I just knew I had done something wrong but couldn't figure out where I went wrong.

I had a break from it (did a bit of crochet actually) then came back and it was glaringly obvious what I had done - I had forgotten the knit row in between so I was knitting 5 then w&t and then knitting 5 and w&t all at the same end.

What an idiot. He just got stranger and stranger and didn't look like anyone elses *embarrassed*

All sorted out now so chugging along!!

I have a front loader too so I might have to hand-felt him.

Ritaw, I just had a look to see where you are because I knew you must be in the Uk! How did I know??
When I went travelling over there one thing I noticed was that english people have their washing machines in their kitchens!! very strange, lol. Over here we don't do that.
It will be my laundry room that I flood, ha ha!!

I am sorry to say that it was a disaster. My fun fur yarn was not good as when my hedgehog came out . It was very bald.

It looked terrible. There was so many gaps . although the wool had shrunk and felted , the fun fair was not very good and shrunk too.

I have a friend who has kindly offered to send me some lionbrand tto try again. I was so upset. I even posted in the questions section but no one replied lol.
Apperently not all fun fair is good for it. On ravelry another person had major balding issues.

You will have to wait till my next attempt

Rita what ghastly news!! You poor thing, roadkill already lol.

Should I 'test' my fluffy wool? I have just started the back, nearly put all the stitches on, (completely lost count of course but got the gist of it).

But now I think I would like to test the fun fur wool first.

Boiling water straight on it or knit a swatch? hmm...

I'll be back!!
