I finished knitting a small and a large bowl in one day and stuck it in the washer on Monday night. It was my fist try at felting the our new washer. I wasn't too impressed. It took 2 cycles to get it going and I could have used a third but they are drying now and will be ready for the gift exchange on Saturday. I found some cute votive holders at IKEA and will use some tealights from my candle stash- yes, I have that too.
