Felting Complete

Well, I see a few things I would modify, but for designing in the dark at various movie theaters, I'm pretty pleased. It took three whopping hot wash/cold rinses for a total of $4.50 which almost makes the Malabrigo cost effective compared to Cascade, but you can't beat the availability and color range. So I'd use it again, for sure.

In the meantime, the star pocket came out looking a bit floral. Not sure how to fix it other than knitting a square, felting, then cutting out the star. since that's not going to happen at this late date, I'm going to live with a floral star pocket. Watch. You know the first words out out of The Divine Mouth will be "look, a flower!"

Oh, and thanks for the thoughts about preventing the pockets from felting shut. of course i didn't even attempt to listen to either one of you (especially when you started using that f-word that makes my eyes glaze over). the short version is they didn't felt shut. not even a little. not even the little loose ends that I left dangling inside the star just to see what would happen. So now we know.
