I'm really not... but.. I knit a bag and as got ready to go to the laundry room to toss the bag into the scary laundry machine in the laundry room.. I couldn't do it.
I wanted control. I wanted to watch it felt. I wanted to make sure nothing bad happened.
So, instead I invested in a new little plunger that will only be used for crafts.
I took off my shoes. I put hot water into the tub. I put the knitted object into the tub.
And away I went.
Is it bad that I could have saved my self slightly scalded toes, a lot of sweat and sore arms if I had just PUT it IN the washing machine? I guess I care more about this trip to Detroit than I had been willing to admit and I'm taking it out on this poor little felted bag.
But, Damn, it looks cute:)
Finished product picture tomorrow. I promise.
