would NOT make my day

I've been knitting like crazy on a bag to felt for DS1s teacher... the yarn spit splices but now I'm thinking that it's recycled from a 80% lambswool/20% nylon abercrombie and fitch sweater.... it would make sense... cables yield lots of yarn and turtlenecks as well and there's a pile of yarn here.. .of course it would serve me right since I didn't mark the skeins... ARGH It's a lovely yarn and the extra will make a great scarf or hat... now that the bag is almost finished knitting, (read HOURS for me) it's 20" wide by 7.5" deep and I have 13" of the height complete... (which is all the pattern calls for)... it would really stink if this thing doesn't felt... keep your fingers crossed for me....

ETA I just balled up an 18" piece and it felted very well in under 2 minutes so I should be OK.... hopefully there'll be a picture to post soon.

Oh and mom, if you're reading, I'm feeling much better...should be back to normal by tmrw.

Worst case you could line the bag. I look forward to seeing it!
