i don't have a cracking wrist problem, but i do sometimes have cramping, and even if you don't have problem, i highly recommend stretching out your hands and lower arms, flex and relax, to ease the strain.

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: felting frustration, grr on: July 21, 2006 10:30:48 AM
several comments to add:

- i have found that the majority of wools i've tried take at least 2 agitation cycles to felt much at all.

- the spin cycle has been okay for me IF the item is at the size i want AND i don't let it spin very long, maybe a minute once the water is mostly out.  that way you get a lot more water out of it (dries faster) but you don't end up with as many creases.

- soap is nice, i find it does help the felting, and sometimes will cut down on the "stinky wet wool" thing that some people don't enjoy

- be sure rinse your item (but be careful of cold water if you absolutely don't want it to felt any more!) because you don't want to leave the soap stuff in your wool - depending on the soap, the chemicals can wear into your wool and cause it to break down (so i've been told!)

- and i haven't tried, as i don't have a front-load washer, but i know you can felt in a front-loader.  you might google felting + front load washer and see what you get (or ask here?)

have fun!

it will really only make a difference if you start doing more involved stitch patterns.  in the long run, you will most likely be happier with your work if all of your knits and all of your purls go the same way.
