Funny knitting dream
Last night I had a dream that I was helping my son work on his science fair project. His theme was "Why sheep don't felt in the rain" and I was knitting him all these swatches so he could prove his point. Then I knit this monster bag which was supposed to be 100% feltable wool, but we kept washing it and washing it and it wouldn't felt at all. Finally my son said that I needed to stop washing it in the rain because rain won't felt sheep.

Somehow I just don't think that my 9yo is all that interested in why sheep don't felt, but it was a pretty funny dream.

I LOVE your dream! How cool! Did you wake up chuckling? It sounds like you might be a bit stressed out about "back to school" though, lol.

In order for sheep to felt in the rain, wouldn't they have to roll around and agitate their fleece?
