I *get* it now!

I did the old school challenge last week, and I tried wool for the first time. Of course, it was a homemade soaker made from a old sweater so felted it had no stretch at all and I had to shoehorn it on DS. Didn't understand the appeal of wool. But then others in the challenge said try interlock or other stretchier wool, and I would see. So I made one out of another sweater, this one not felted:



I'm not sure if this is over a PF or a flat, I use both. But anyway, I get the appeal now and will use wool at home and save the PUL for trips out. Thank goodness he's a boy, or I'd be all over those pink ruffled handknitted/crocheted ones on HC! I can make 4 out of an XL sweater, so I'll just look for a blue one too.
