Felt!

About a week ago, I had an urge to make some wee felt balls, I'm not sure what I'll do with them yet, maybe string them up to make a garland?

And then, with the wool left over from my blanket, and some purple wool I had from Christmas gifts, I made three wee felt bowls using this pattern.

Here's how they started out, and after a wash cycle in the machine with a towel for company, they shrunk up into firm, fuzzy wee bowls. (This is the merino fibre for sale in my felt store, it felts beautifully too!)

I think my washing machine will be acquainting itself with more wool in the future!
