Thanks everyone! I did try it like you said but my machine has an energy saving feature that doesn't let the water get hot enough. I had to empty the machine and fill it with a bucket from the tap. I used WAY too much soap
but I finally got the mitten to felt. I'm glad I just knit the first one b/c I cast on way too tightly and my DD can't get her chubby little hand in there. So, the mittens are a super fast knit so I will just make a two more with a much looser cast on. Or I'll add some sts.
I'll post pics when they are done!
Late at night, when the family's all asleep,
you will find me counting stitches
instead of counting sheep!
I'm on Etsy when I'm not knitting...
I'm Hartleystudio on Ravelry too!!
