Oh wow, YarnMommy! I didn't notice your blog name in your first post. I agree! LOVE the name!!! Great pics on your blog. Looks like you've been busy knitting!
I'm working on a large felted bag, too. It's going to take me FOREVER. I'm still working on the bottom of the bag, and I can't believe how long it's taking me. I'm experimenting with yarn, and I'm realizing I'd better do a test-felt swatch (a pocket for the bag), to make sure the yarns felt at the same rate. Dont want to waste all this yarn on such a huge bag, if it's a botch felting job waiting to happen! Your bag is great. Love the handle.
My DH got me my first Boye Needlemaster set (an old set from eBay) a few years ago for my birthday, and I just got myself a second, modern set in December. Love them!
