well i got my yarn voucher - and haven't spent it yet.
However what i did do today was swapped the non-feltable yarn (yes i have given up after 6 washes) for some noro kureyon- colour 90.
looks yummy and apparently felts really well too. I am still going to use the hello yarn pattern but will use the mini skull pattern but knit it in the round ala the lopi pattern on size 7mm needles- as then i do not have to buy another set of needles.
and this time it should felt. YEH.
PS: apparently my S&B Nation order is still 'in process' whatever that means.
