Felt #… 4?

February 25, 2008

I refelted the pi again this morning. I think this is the fourth time, so about two hours of hand felting overall. I think I have new muscles!

When I picked it up this morning the sides flopped back into an almost-flat circle. It wasn’t completely dry, so I maybe could’ve just left it, but I honestly didn’t think it would set up any more than it had in the two days it’d already been drying. This time I have it taped into position, so perhaps that will help. Or maybe I’ll just give it a full week so it might actually dry. I think it is fully felted, finally. I don’t see any remaining stitch definition or holes where the light peeks through. It’s nicely malleable, but it was at that point last felting. If this doesn’t work I don’t think I’ll try to felt it any more, just find something smaller to block it on so I can control the blocking better.

Florida humidity + blocking = sigh.
