Salli A. shared a knitting "failure" with the group
Salli A. was given some wool and after she spun it into yarn, she intended to knit and full (felt) some mittens in return for the wool. Unfortunately, everything she tried to do to full (felt) the knit mittens would not work. She tried hot water, soapy water with agitation, and even threw them into the dryer, and beat on the mittens, but the mittens refused to shrink or full. A group discussion resulted, and members learned that the wool from some breeds of sheep does not shrink or felt.
