Notes

credit to lilyofforce for the great project name

16 nov - started with 5.5mm needles but will go down to 5mm. needs to be denser.
17 - switched to 5mm, looks good

work paired decreases on rows 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 of handle flap

3 jan - all knit, blocked, seamed up. is it going to be too large? can i felt it a bit now?? need to weave in ends and sew lining. also need some really rigid fabric to insert in handle flaps.
4 jan - felted it a bit
7 feb - actually finished it, lining all sewn in.

16 mar 2013 - felted this up a bit more as always felt that it hung too long
