Thank you all so much, and thanks again to all mouse knitters!
I’ve emailed all winners at the email addresses written on the raffle tickets. If you are listed as a winner and didn’t get an email from me it means I had a typo in your email address. Please email me (using the “Contact Me” link in my sidebar) and confirm your snail mail address. Prizes six and seven are being mailed directly from Melissa and Veronique, so I’ll pass your addresses along to them.
Caroline asked yesterday if the pattern for my PiS sweater directed me to steek the neck. The pattern has you simply knit a tube, then cut out the neck and edge it with velvet ribbon. Instead, I steeked the neck, using the photo as a guide, and will finish the neck in i-cord using the burgundy, as I don’t particularly care for the ribbon finish.
Here’s my new Booga Bag in progress:
Ain’t those purty colors?
About felting, Latifa asked:
When you felt with a towel, do you ever have trouble with lint on the finished felt? I was going to use jeans or something else to avoid that.
As Julie recommended in the pattern, I put the bag in a zippered pillowcase to felt, so there was no lint anywhere — except yarn lint inside the pillowcase. I highly recommend it!
In answer to another comment question yesterday, I’ve not had any trouble with Kureyon colors running. Yet.
