Finished Felting

In my quest for a top-loading washer, I visited the laundromat. I plunked in my $2.25 and tossed my hat and soap in the washer. The laundromat does not offer hot water, nor does it offer heavy duty wash.

Nothing happened.

Sure, things were a little more fuzzy, but basically there was no change to the hat.

I enlisted the help of Kathy who sudsed it up, agitated it heavily, and used some hot water.

Presto, shrinko! The hat now fits Lizzie.

Figures. I'm knitting another hat. Where the pattern said to cast on 110 stitches, I cast on 150 stitches. As soon as I find another kind-hearted friend, I will show you the results.
