A-swatching I will go!

Dangit... blogger won't let me upload photos right now, but I got the swatches done as soon as I woke up this morning. They are in the washer, and I'm having a heck of a time trying to type with my fingers crossed! They are about 3x3 each, and I'm really hoping they will felt. I will post the before and after photos later on today. I did some searching at Ram's, and the only logical replacement for all this would be their Selkirk Wool. Since I'd need about 8 skiens, I'm looking at over $50 to do this... with no guarantees about felting either, since the natural white looks like it may have been bleached as well. I'm just heartbroken. I do have a back-up project, Lissa's cabled poncho, that I can do... but I've got my heart set on the Booger, so anything else just won't be as satisfying.

Hi Nicole, I'm from the Knitting Manitoba group, I met you at Chapters the other nite. I'm not participating in the Knitting Olympics, but I just wanted to wish you the best of luck. I'm sure you'll do well at the Knitlympics!!

Thanks so much for your vote of confidence, Janice! If you are at McNally's on the 21st, hopefully you will see me knitting the booger, and not the poncho!
