I completely was out of my gourd thinking the bag would be done before going to Hawaii. Significant work has been done on the bag in Hawaii; it has been to Waikiki beach. However, my original thought upon seeing the washing machine down the hallway in the hotel was that I might actually finish the bag and then get it felted and dried in time to use it to carry my laptop home. Since we depart tomorrow, that's not going to happen. Considering that today is going to be a majority beach day, I could come close to finishing it, but it won't get felted while in Hawaii. And hopefully it doesn't bring home too much white sand either.
