Hello All,

I'm a new felter.  I tackled my first project today after some experimenting and made 1 out of 2 leg warmers. It turned out relatively good for a first try! But dear lord i couldn't believe how long it took.  It took me over 4 hours from laying down roving to final product.

I want to make the second one but I don't know when I'll have a four hour window.  I was wondering if there is a point in the wet felting process that you can leave the project.  For instance can you start the fulling and then maybe leave it once the felt it strong but not totally shrunken?  or leave it after you wet it out like a prefelt? (keep it damp wrapped in plastic)

or is there another point you could leave it overnight to finish the next day?

Let me know what you think!
Thanks~
