I got it in my head that I wanted to make a felted bowl. So I looked through the yarn stash and picked out two skeins of wool that I thought would go well together. I tried knitting first and then decided that crocheting would produce a sturdier bowl. It didn’t take too long to finish a small bowl shape. I threw it in some hot water and soap, did some scrubbing and agitation by hand, and then tossed the wet bowl in the dryer with some socks and towels.
Unfortunately, the bowl did not turn out as well as I’d hoped. I think the lesson to be learned from this is that you have to use super bulky yarn and not two strands of medium weight yarn. And rather than some half-assed scrubbing, you’ve got to really rough it up in the felting process.
