WIP: Candy Stripers Laptop Bag

I'm currently working on the Candy Stripers Laptop Bag from Stitch 'N Bitch Nation. My only other felting experience was with Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky (the yarn called for in the pattern) and I wasn't really pleased with the results. I decided (after consulting the forums at knitty.com and craftster.org) to head over to elann.com (this place is doom, I tell ya) and get Peruvian Collection Highland Chunky instead. I'm using "grape heather", "charcoal heather", "mid-indigo", and "light grey heather". It is looking a lot taller than I'd expected. I'm hoping that will scrunch up when felted. If not, I guess I'll just put my laptop in lengthwise. Last night I finished off the front panel and got started on the back panel. The picture shows the front panel, bottom panel, and back panel (left to right). I'll probably work on it again tonight if Mark decides to hole up in his office playing WoW.
