chalk bag test run!

The chalk bag test run was a pretty good success.  There were some problems, some notes for chalk bag round 2, but overall worked out great.

Here are some notes:

  1. Paton's Classics Wool Merino is awesome for this project.
  2. Cast on 80, garter stitch AT LEAST 4 rounds, possibly more.
  3. Test run did eyelets at round 15, only made 7.  Next time, do them at round 15 again but space them better and possibly make 8.
  4. Crochet or knit another circle to reinforce the bottom, the decreasing creates small holes and I didn't felt it enough to completely fill those.
  5. GET BIGGER GROMMETS!  I can't completely finish the test run until I return the grommets I got, they're too small!

On a side note, moving was a huge success!  I'm all settled in, almost unpacked and going to get bad cats on Saturday!
