Yay! I just finished another Sophie, and like the other one, it will have to wait to be felted. I used my kool-aid yarn, in the Black Cherry colorways. For the strap, I braided 3 pieces of i-cord. Unfortunately, halfway through the grafting, I realized that the braid was too tight (no room for shrinkage). I had to undo the grafting and rebraid. I just hope that it is loose enough to felt properly.
