ready for felting
I finally finished adding the duplicate stitch on the farmer's market bag. It took a lot more time than I thought it would because I had to keep my needle from catching on all the stranded colorwork and from splitting the single-ply Lopi.

I'm getting nervous about how much the bag might shrink and wondering if I should make the strap longer. The last time I felted a purse, I kept reading that knitted items tend to shrink more lengthwise, but that was not what happened and the strap ended up being way too long. I'm hoping to get the same results this time. Of course with Murphy's Law, this one will probably end up being an itty bitty shoulder strap! Check back for the exciting conclusion of this felting adventure...
