Felting update and some bits and pieces

Felting update - the bag shrank by an inch in height after going through a 40 degree wash (40 probably isn't hot enough though). There was still a fair amount of stitch definition too, so I chucked it in the sink with some hand-hot water and a bit of laundry liquid. After 10 minutes or so of work it was suitably felted, and had shrunk another inch in height. It's around 5 inches tall, 2.5 inches deep by about 5 inches wide now (originally 7 x 3.5 x 6). Currently drying and blocking using a plastic box of a suitable size, pictures hopefully tomorrow when it's dry and I've added the handles and button.

Have you seen that Mary-Lou's Steek Boa won the runner-up prize in Simply Knitting's scarf competiton?! Fantastic news and well deserved, it's a great pattern.

There's also an interesting new yarn site that has come to my attention this week, Posh Yarn. Looks lovely, I doubt I shall be able to resist for long. I know someone has just ordered from them (mentioning no names!).

Looks like we're all waiting for that certain 'someone' to report back on Posh Yarns before we all race over, credit card in hand! lol!
