Mystery Object Felted!
Due to a technical problem, I couldn't do the felting until the day before yesterday. At first, I tried to do it manually in the water basin. However, it seems without the action of the washing machine, the wool wouldn't felt ... or maybe it would have taken a much longer time. Finally, I had to go back to the machine.
It was fun watching how the texture of the finished object changed. It took me 4 2-minute washing sessions to make it fit. I now understand why some knitters are so crazy about felting. Felted wool feels lovely in the hand. Now I am much more motivated to make a felted bag later.
