the stress… ahem, joy… of felting!

As I type, I am attempting to felt a very large project (31″ x 27″) rug in one of the (front-loading) washing machines in my apartment building. This causes me to hyperventilate (well, not really, but almost…) as I’m worried about ruining the rug, which I loved in its unfelted form. Here it is below, for posterity…

This was knitted in Brown Sheep Burly Spun and was found in a book by Beverly Galeskas called “Felted Knits” (which I recommend very highly).

Well, there goes the timer for round 1 (I also have a hat in there). Wish me luck…
