So I knitted these, thinking this would be a no brainer project - wool slippers that you felt in the washing machine. How easy peasy! I found the pattern at All Fiber Arts.
Well, they haven't felted up. They've been through the washing machine 3 times but no felting. They are made from lovely wool that I purchased in NYC from Wooly Hill Farm. Maybe I need a dryer? We don't have one and I reckon the desire to felt slippers is not a suitable criteria for My Charming Lad to run out and purchase one.
I wonder what I need to do differently? Anyone out there who might know?
Also, for all you mums at home, how do you manage to get housework done as WELL as making things?? I of course, would, by FAR, prefer making things over housework. But I suppose someone needs to clean the mold off the shower wall.................. Anyone?
