I am so pleased with my new potholder! I restarted three times (as I do all knitting projects), and I think it turned out just right. Having nothing feltable in the house (!) due to an overabundance of superwash and high-twist handspun, i decided to use two strands of DK weight on size 3 needles to get a nice thick fabric. The variegated is a commercial wool yarn, the gray is a 3-ply handspun Hardwick wool.
When we edit a post and hit submit, does it go through the approval/rejection process again? I added an extra picture showing that my yarn is 100% wool, but it shows I have no pending BB submissions. Do I create an entirely new reply to submit?

Also, it's easier to verify the size of projects if there's a tape measure showing for scale, so consider including one in future textiles badge bits for faster approvals. Happy Knitting!
I found a skein of wool yarn in the yarn tote, and decided to try a new technique for this bb. Used this video for the thermal half double crochet potholder: https://youtu.be/_QCtcvPKOZg It turned out nice and thick, and I used the entire skein, though I'm not sure if any was used before I got to it. The final size is 10” by 12”. I will felt it next.
