Would a piece still felt OK if I crochet using 2 strands of worsted weight wool yarn (it's Lion Brand. The label says its perfect to felt.)? I can't find the exact color I want in a more bulky yarn.

I see no reason why it wouldn't felt--I think because it will be thick that it may take a bit longer, but it's all wool, so it will still felt! Smiley

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha

I agree, there's no reason it wouldn't felt the same.  Just make sure to use a large enough hook to make the crochet a bit loose (not tight), or it will take a lot longer. 

I'd be curious to hear how long it takes the Lion Wool to felt.  I tried a swatch using different wools, and the Lion Wool stripes seemed to take a lot longer than Patons Classic Merino and Knit Picks Wool of the Andes which were done in 15-20 minutes.

Good luck!
