What are you most proud of? It is actually working as far as the knitting goes. More later when I get to felting.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go slowly until you get the rhythm. I love mosaic knitting. Discovered that the pocket turning process and the mosaic slip stitches were challenging. Used mattress stitch to tighten and firm the corners.

Hi Lucy, I am using Mosaic knitting and also double knitting pockets. In the instructions for the gadget bag, the pocket knitting has 2 back rows and one front row initially and then the next row only the front is knit. Following the instructions all the pocket stitches ended up being purled (I used basic dk on mine and not st st) So I got to thinking, could you do the front twice and the back once in the first row, and then finish with the back on the second row? For my Mosaic knitting, this is certainly easier as I am knitting the same direction as the chart on the first row. I would like to be sure that going around the pocket the opposite direction won't cause any pitfalls. Thanks.
