Day 60 - Shrink Shrank Shrunk!

 Day 60 - Slippers are knitted and in the process of shrinking. Our washer is a water saver HE type and not very conducive to felting or fulling. SO I used a combination of hand scrubbing vigorously and by washing machine. It took 4 wash cycles and some knuckle skin.    THese before pics --show how HUGE they were....This is Scott trying on the Slippers made for a Shrek! (He is a size 11 )
I don't believe any of us thought this was  going to work...except for me, of course, "MUST HAVE FAITH IN THE PATTERN!!"
Will send finished pics here soon!!!
Happy Knitting everyone!
