|I've left two pegs out of the job.|
So I ripped it out and doubled the yarn. By doubling the yarn and not using all of the pegs on the loom, I hoped to created a very tight tube for my soap. Why so tight and doubled? I hope that as the soap shrinks with use, there will be enough tension and enough fiber to allow the tube to remain fitted, and not sag around the soap.

|I drawstring finished this end.|
Waxy colored pencils
don't leave any marks.
|This soap is bulky.|
After drawing it closed,
I also added a finger-
|My handspan (length) is about 7"|
So far, so good. It's snug, it felts with use, I can hang it up so it dries out thoroughly, and it's just the right amount of rough. We'll see if my "shrink-to-fit" plan works out...
