Happy Valentines Day



My wife knits these hearts then runs them (not the one in the middle)  through the washing machine to make them fuzzy.  Funny thing though is we have a front loader washing machine and they weren't coming out the way she wanted.  A friend suggested trying a top loader machine and so she did.  
It worked.  Weird how the orientation of the tub made a difference.
Have a nice heart day!

Happy valentine to you too.

I don't understand, putting wool in the washing machine makes them shrink anyhow, not fuzzy in my opinion. Strange that the orientation of the tub makes a difference.

Hmm. Must have something to do with the rubbing action in a top loading machine. Hope you are having a wonderful Valentine's Day!

The hearts are just lovely. Wonder what the difference is in the washers?

Do you know what Roving is? Is this another word for dry felting?

Happy Valentine's Day! These came out so cute!

Janie, .... roving is just a name that refers to the wool fibres that are used ... I think it can refer to any fibres...but, for the dry felting I buy wool roving ... of various types and colours.... check out Needle Felting sometime online and you will see all sorts of info on what, how, etc...

Those are nice. I think Sinbad needs a Catnip filled one.
