One hour and 35 minutes of dryer time later

Blogger won't upload photos this morning (You Knit What seems to be having the same issue), but the new flamingo spent just over an hour and a half in the dryer last night with a couple really old towels and came out much smaller and firmer. It needed a couple of resoakings in the course of the process, working on the theory that wetness really helps the felting process. Dryer setting on highest, checks along the away.

The Wonderful Wool had a bit of dye transfer issues when subjected to abuse. The (warm to hot) water in the sink turned pinkish as the items soaked, the white perle cotton thread holding the belly closed until it's stuffed turned pinkish, and the bar towels in the bird that are lightly stuffing it while it dries are also getting some dye transfer. Not a big problem, but something to be aware of.

This will probably take a couple days to dry fully, then I can sew in the eyes and stuff it for real. Naming will probably happen after that, unless something inspirational happens.

Back to the kitten?
