Yarn: Brown Sheep Bulky from Webs

This felted fairly well, but I was unprepared for the length. This is one long and skinny bag--perfect for long needles! Every time I felt something I find it lacking in some way. This one just didn't come out quite like I wanted it to. I think it must be that felted wool just isn't my preferred bag fabric (leather all the way). I'm not much of a bag person, but this will give me something to toss my knitting into. And, I have to say I would not want to use Brown Sheep Bulky for anything other than felting. It sheds like crazy, leaving little wool balls all over the house. I am still vacuuming them up this week!

While Brown Sheep Bulky doesn't win my favor, I adore Peace Fleece. The wool is lovely, the company politics excellent, and their patterns beautiful.

I've been looking at this yarn in my LYS for a while and the Coup d'etat Cardigan pattern sealed the deal:

I've been busy washing my winter sweaters as it has been 80-95 degrees F each day, but I might actually cast on for a wool sweater this summer.

Oh yes, Bless. She's finished, but missing a zipper. I couldn't find one in town and am waiting for a specially made zipper from Zippersource. Another finished object soon!
