Phew, it’s finished in time for the end of the Olympics. Despite running short on stuffing last night, I finished up today after a quick shopping trip. Pre-felting the diameter was about 2 feet, unstuffed & post-felting, the diameter is about 1 1/2 feet. It’s still pretty big, but close to what I had in mind.
Now that I’m done, I’ll have to finish the baby blanket, but I’d eventually like to return to the pattern & refine it. We’ll see if that happens.
