Pockets came out nice.

Is a little bit big on one side on the joining band, but it will be fine. I have a front loader washer and it was perfect for this. Below is the before felting look.

It's a well-known fact that Andy is actually a refugee from a planet where time only goes half as fast as it does on earth. So he's actually knitting at normal speed, it just *seems* to be unearthly fast. There should be an adverb for "unearthly" but "unearthlily" does not please the spell checker. :)

You guys are funny. These days I knit very fast if motivated. Alien DNA always helps and Time travel is always in good supply lol.

I love it! It reminds me of shield from Game of Thrones or Brave Heart.

Your sun satchel looks great, Andy! I really like the colors you used. I just casted myself one on last night. I'm going to be using Lamb's pride worsted in oatmeal, and cafe au late; I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Lambs Pride will make it felt very nice. Mine came out about 3 inches bigger than the original felted bag, but I don't mind a big bag, more yarn to put into it lol

Great work, Andy. And the comments back and forth add to the pleasure.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
