I finished the Noro Kureyon Lucy bag and tried to felt it in the washing machine, but it's still very loose and stretchy. I even spent some time (and scoured my fingers) trying to felt it by hand in the sink. It got a little better but it's still not quite right--and it left a lot of fiber in my sink that was nearly impossible to clean out. So now I have to wait until next laundry day to try to machine-felt it again. I know, I could go ahead and run it through the machine now, but I don't want to waste quarters (not to mention water and energy) on just 1 item. I suppose this is my cautionary tale for the week: Noro Kureyon doesn't felt very well. If you're impatient (as I am), try Knit Picks' Wool of the Andes for your felted projects. It works beautifully on the first try. Speaking of Knit Picks, I saw that they're having a sale on all their books. I may have to buy one to console myself after this latest fiasco.
