The Magic of Felting

A quick post from lovely Somerville, where I've been clearing my belongings out of a basement, and dumping them or sending them westward. It's been mentally scarring, so let's see something I finished before I left the West Coast.

Here's a Felted Bowl, pre felting:

The yarn is Manos, the pattern is from One Skein.
Here it is, post-felting:

I like how the unevenness of the yarn looks after felting, although the purple seems to have lost some of it's vibrancy. I may have enough yarn left for a tiny matching bowl, but I didn't bring it with me on my trip--it'll have to wait until next year!! Happy New Year!
