Just finished the stocking last night, and felted it today, I used the washing machine at my laundromat plus a good beating in the kitchen sink. I think for the next few weeks whenever I do laundry I'm going to toss it in with a load to get the stitches to disappear (I can't do all the felting at once because the washing machines at the laundromat cost 4,00 Euro for one load) However, this was a great project and really enjoyed it with the exception of the first "frogging." I learned how to turn a heel etc. So now whenever I make my first pair of socks it'll be easier. Here are some pictures below, let me know what you guys think! The first picture (186) is before felting and the second one is after felting.
