Above are the pre-felted photos so you can get a feel for how large it was before felting.
I used cascade 220 heathers for this. A nice green color and size 13 needles. I started on August 18 and finished on August 25. I found the pattern easy to follow and you could felt this down to nearly any size. I only used about 3/4 of a skein of yarn as well.
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
