Look, I actually made something!

O.k. yes, occassionally I do make things with my own yarn! I’ve wanted to make felted bowls for a while now but I just don’t have the patience to knit them. I went in search of crocheted bowl patterns to felt and found a couple that worked exactly as I wanted them to. One in particular I bought at Etsy from this seller: http://www.timaryart.etsy.com

They went together fast, these I did in about an hour. The yarn is my own handspun, it is rainbow merino wool that I carded and spun a couple weeks ago. The skein I used was 112 yards, I have about 15 yards left after making four bowls.

Dimensions for bowls are as follows from largest to smallest:

Bowl 1: 4 inches across by 2.25 inches tall.

Bowl 2: 3.5 inches across by 2 inches tall.

Bowl 3: 3 inches across by 1.75 inches tall.

Bowl 4: 2.5 inches across by 1.5 inches tall.

Felting them was a breeze, I’m going to make more to see if they’ll sell at the craft show I will be going to in November.

  1. Beautiful bowls, Joy! 🙂

    And good luck to your brother. My dad severed nerves and a tendon in his hand last spring with a saw…very scary, and he was lucky it wasn’t worse. I’m glad to hear your brother’s reattachment went well.
