1  Needing some encouragement in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by Xolabajola on: March 29, 2010 12:18:25 PM
I made this pattern with PCStitch when my step daughters were old enough to love the show.  The eldest graduated from high school last year so that tells you how long I have had this idea.  It's 28 count Aida, done with 1 strand of thread.  I still enjoy the idea and concept of the powerpuff girls, still like the whole 'strong girls fighting crime' so when its done, I will probably just keep it in my craft room.  Im just needing encouragement. I finished Blossom this weekend.

That's the inspiration for the pattern, including the pink hearts background.

This is what I have done so far.  It's taken me a year of on and off stitching to get this done.

2  felted knitted bowl, what did I do wrong? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Xolabajola on: February 16, 2010 06:33:45 PM
This is my first ever attempt at wet felting.  I found this awesome pattern online and since I just got some wool, I thought I would give felting a shot.  This is the pattern http://www.heavydutydesign.com/alicethelma/2009/03/free-pattern-felted-nesting-bowls/  Her bowls are awesome and beautiful, mine is nice, but doesnt look like those.

I used a sport weight yarn and knit on size 8 needles as that was the largest dpns I have.  The pattern calls for knitting every row.  Here is my attempt at her wonderful bowls.

The top of the bowl rolled in on itself.  I thought this would fix itself in the felting process but as you can see, it just felted a lip on the bowl.  Also the sides of the bowl are not as stiff as I expected them to be, the structure of the bowl doesnt hold at all, its all floppy.

Can someone who knows more than me, please tell me what I did wrong?  I love the concept of this and I very much want to make more bowls and possibly a pencil/pen/needle holder for my desk.
