Drying Felted Object
I just finished knitting a Huggable Hedgehog for my friend's birthday! (Which is today) I have felted the animal already but was wondering if you could use a hair dryer to make it dry quicker. Can I dry it using this or do I have to air dry it? I am just wondering because I need to to dry soon so that I can give it to her later today.

I've dried some things in the dryer with no problems so the hair dryer should be fine. It might felt slightly more, but if it's well felted to begin with it should be okay. The inside might take quite a while though.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

I also learned if you do a purse to can out it over a cereal box in front of a fan. Saved my butt Christmas Eve!
