Did you ever try and felt something??????
I love to felt wool yarn. This is a bowl that I did.
It is knitted in the round on No. 6 circular needles. Cast on 25 stitches. Knit 14 rounds. Knit along sides and start knitting in the round for 10 or 12 rounds. Next I added multicolored yarn 10 rounds. Increase 4 stitches then when your done with the color yarn decrease those 4 stitches. Knit 2 rounds. Decrease 2 stitches. Knit 2 rounds. Decrease 2 stitches. Find the # of stitches to make middle for holes. knit holes. then knit 6 rounds. all done.
Then you stick it in the washer with some old jeans and wash on hot water with a little bit of soap. I stuffed mine with plastic bags to make shape and let dry.
I grew up in the 70's and Holly Hobbie was a big collectors item back then. I still to this day LOVE Holly Hobbie. So here is a cute picture to brighten your day!!!
I still have some old ceramic Holly Hobbie figurines.
