Atlanta, Georgia. I only wish it were easier to come by. I buy it when I can find it. I'd love to subscribe, but the overseas shipping, timewise and financially, worries me.

I agree with the others: you're probably not working into that last stitch, because it just does not look like a stitch.
Keep at it and you'll get it eventually. I think I made umpteen triangular...

I agree. The one and only time I tried to felt something, I used Lamb's Pride and was so disappointed in the results. What a fuzzy, nasty mess. Someone told me that the mohair kept it from felting...
