This vessel is the result of the 5 needle knitting project in my last post. The colors in that post are not true, these are. This looked knitted (see post below) until I tossed it in the washing machine. With hot water and agitation, it became "felted". The felting process causes knitted stitches to become invisible as the wool fibers interlock. After shaping, drying, and embellishing, I have this 4" tall vessel that can be used or just enjoyed. With a small glass inside, it can be a vase. I have been using another similar vessel to hold q-tips in our bathroom. LOL, it's very strong. The copper charm has been waiting for a new home for awhile. Felting can be done in different ways, and knitting to felt is new to me. It's fun!
