Christina, as long as it's 100% wool, that isn't superwash, it should work fine.

here's the before & after (doesn't really look different in the pictures, though!)

before felting:

and after felting:

I actually used it today and got some compliments! Made me feel good since it was the first thing I ever did like this!

No, I didn't but I think the Peace Fleece has a bit more heft to it. The handles are a bit longer - so that is different...

It's much smaller after felting, but the photos make it look the same... Should have Mr. Xan put his foot by it so the difference is clearer. :LOL

I bought the yarn to finish the bag this weekend but haven't picked it up to knit. Too hot and muggy, ugh. Maybe it will cool down in the evening this week. I'd say I'm a 1/3 done with the sides of my mega sophie as I am starting to call it.

God! <turns head to side and closes eyes> I love it!

Actually, the guy I most recently dated and I sort of got together because of ND-- someone mentioned skills, and we both went "Like, nunchuck skills, bowhunting skills, computer hacking skills..." we had a moment, LOL

I am in WA & just finished row 54. I forgot my DPN so I need to find a knit store to get some up here. I have a question. It says to bind off 29 stiches but, when I finished the round I ended at the 6 stiches for the handles. Did I do somthing wrong? What should I do??? Thanks.
Anyone know of a knitting store in Everett, WA??? Thanks...

I finished the bag last night @ the knit together. I felted & blocked it this morning. Shrunk up pretty small. About .5 inches less than the demensions listed. I am starting another one & doubling the pattern. Anyone else do this? How long circulars should I get? Thanks. I will post pictures of the finished bag later, when I get back home.

I am in the process of working on my doubled sophie. It fits on 16" but it's a tight fit, so if you have bigger ones sitting around I'd use them but I wouldn't go out a buy a new set just for this project.

Thanks Indigo! Have you got to where you decrease? How did you do it? Did you just double the decreases at each marker? Did you decrease every 20 rows vs the ten rows? Thanks.

Just got to the point where I decrease... hadn't decided what I was going do yet.

But thinking about it, I thought I'd do the "normal" decreases every 10 and see how that works out. Especially since I plan on tweaking the straps making it longer and wider without the twist...

Hi Indigo, I am there too. I just made it to row ten & I am not sure if I should decrease normal & do 108 rows instead of 54. Or should I do the 54 rows & decrease 4 vs 2. With the bottom so much bigger being doubled, I think I will do normal 2 decrease with 108 rows. What do you think???

Yep Debstmomy, that is what I am thinking of doing.

I don't want it to get too narrow looking at the top, just a graceful slenderization, lol

Here are pics of my first sophie bag. It turned out cute, but way to small.

Has anyone finished a doubled sophie? did it take more than 2 hanks of cascade 220??
I am on row 35 & on my 2nd hank & I have less than 1/2 a hank left. I am getting concerned. Thanks.
