Rain and felted rings

When the weather is cold and rainy, it's difficult to get myself into wet felting. It's just too cold to work with water! So I've been crocheting instead, making felted bowls, but I did get to do a little bit of wet felting. Tada! I made a few custom felted rings and it always amazes me how a small fuzzy ball felts down into a nice-smooth-warm-soft ring. Here's a before-and-after picture I took of the ring.

I hope the weather calms down tomorrow. I miss the California sun!


  1. Beautiful work! Time for you to teach me how you do the wet felting! I just discovered a wonderful store here in SF with felting supplies - it is called Urban Fauna, check it out on line. Is crocheting the bowls quicker than knitting them? I just so happened to felt a few bowls last night. Hope you are well.

  2. Hi Ruth!
    I will definitely check out the store when I go up to SF again! I've been knitting bowls to felt them, and recently started to crochet instead. I'm having so much fun with it! It crochets really fast, and felts nicely. I have maybe four five sets of new bowls that are waiting to be felted (it takes multiple cycles to completely felt them). I'll show them later!
