…my first booga bag?
I decided yesterday afternoon that I want to make my mother a booga bag for Mother’s Day. So I stopped on the way home from work to buy yarn and was able to finish the bottom and pick up stitches for the sides last night. Now it is around and around as fast as I can go. :XX: :XX:
I have a couple of questions for the felting experts on here, however:
- Once I have finished the felting portion, can I put my bag through the spin cycle to remove excess water?
- I recall someone (KellyK perhaps) mentioning putting felted items in the dryer. Any guidelines on what temp and for how long? (and do I leave it in the pillowcase or not?) Also I assume I should pull it out while still slightly damp to block?
I think I can get the knitting done without too much of a problem (although that I-cord will be a pain), so I am more worried about drying time post-felting. Thus the questions about time-savers.
