Hand-spun, Knitted and Felted

What's left of my hand-spun drop-spindle yarn after knitting and felting the scallop-edged bowl below (4-1/2" x 2-1/2")

When I saw the first pic on this post I thought "Wow, you MADE that!!" I think this is so cool that you spun the yarn and knitted a bowl. I KNOW you are so proud of this piece and it is gorgeous too!

Very nice!!! I have always wanted to spin but never bothered to learn and now my hands don't work well enough to give it a try.

I love that you are spinning yarn and using it to make beautiful things.

Thank you, Carol! You could do this, it takes so little in supplies (just a simple drop spindle and some roving) and is easy on your hands if done the way I do it. My hands are not in good shape either.

Very impressive!!! You might get me to start spinning again but first I would have to dust off my wheel.
