Bowled Over

I assure you that I am not obsessed.  Really.
I just like making knitted and felted bowls.

I had some not so nice, a little bulky and uneven skeins of wool which I had spun YEARS ago.  I had even dyed them myself.  But they weren't fit to make into anything wearable.
Felted bowls were the perfect projects to use this yarn to its best advantage.

Some are large enough to use as yarn ball holders.

I'm loving them.

I'm loving them too! I have still never tried a felted project, but I have some balls of yarn that I processed from skirting the wool to spinning the yarn and it is very uneven...but maybe I could felt it.
Thanks for the inspiration :)

Hello Willow. Loved looking at your photos of knitting, wonderful how wool can catch the eyes with all it's colours.

That's a terrific idea for odd skeins! I love them too!
