I have experienced my own little knitting miracle! I wasn’t holding out much hope that this hat was going to felt properly. The last I posted about it, I had it on one of the dogs!! Now, if Lucy wants to wear it, she’s gonna have to fight me for it!

I had so little faith that all was going to turn out for the Bucket-o-Chic, that after attempting to felt it by hand in the kitchen sink, I got fed up and threw it in the washing machine. Remember that I have a front loading washer and cannot fish things out once the cycle starts. But lo and behold it emerged beautifully!! This is one terrific pattern and I have already started my next one!
