Time To Block

I made a ton of progress on the Jester batt yesterday. In fact, it’s all spun into singles and almost half of it is plyed. I just love the brown and copper look of the finished product.



I probably could have finished plying it last night, but I took a break to watch Hook and worked on the blue wrap. Ta-da! It’s finished and ready for blocking.

Oh, and the felted bag turned out well.

Nice and Firm

Ready To Finish

(After a cycle on hot and another on warm.) It’s definitely fulled. I just wish when I crocheted it I had paid more attention to making it a perfect circle. The end result is a little lumpy. Now I just have to figure out what to do for handles . . . I’m out of the particular yarn.

This was very nice practice for another project I have in mind. It’s a felted bag, and judging from how nice and firm this one turned out, it should work well for toting a heavy pad of paper about. I’m just worried about how fuzzy it is. It feels like everything and anything will stick to it.

    You are getting a good variety of colors in your work!
    Your coppery reminds me of brown sugar, yummy!
