It Felt Like the Holidays!

I know, bad blog post title, but what can I say I just love making felted things!

These are 3 felted bowls destined to find their way under the Christmas tree. I made mine from the One Skein book using #15US needles, which is what makes it super fast. I knit them by holding 2 strands of Noro Kureyon together. I just picked randomly from my stash from balls that had lost their tags, of course! I just love how the colors change and work so well together! I also managed to get 2 bowls from 2 balls of yarn, which made me very happy.

Here is just a single bowl, that only took one ball of Noro Kureyon in Color #149 Naturals. I took a strand from the outside and a strand from the inside and just knit away. The pears inside are from Interweave Holiday Knits 2006. If you can't find a copy of the magazine noni has just come out with their own pear pattern in their Fall 2007 collection. The pears are a whole lot of fun to make. They are super fast and take only a little bit of yarn. I managed to make all of mine from stashed bits of yarn, except for the yellow one, which came from my friend Jill's stash.

My last finished felt project is actually a birthday present. This was given to the very special Kbear for her 4th birthday. You can check out a better post about her party here. Check out her hair! Blair usually gets asked at work get togethers if she is his child because of her curls.

One last felt project is another pair of felted clogs. This is made mainly from stash-dived yarn. I had 1/2 skein of Eco Wool in color #9012 chocolate/taupe and a skein of Cascade 220 in color #8555 black. I had to buy a skein of Cascade Tweed in color #602 evergreen . I love the cascade tweed. I really want to make a sweater out of it. This project is fun, though I'm not sure of the colors. It is very manly, which is what it is supposed to be, but it just isn't my colors. I had a lot more fun knitting the blue ones a couple of months ago.

Oh, and just to make you feel good, I am almost done with all of my Christmas knitting. There is a slim chance that I might be done before December starts, but I'm not holding my breath for it.

But, I LOVE the title! I should really consider falting a couple of items for Christmas.
