I grabbed two balls of Gina and finished these bowls in one evening. I felted them this morning.
It was my first attempt felting with a front loader and it went pretty well. But the bowls did not felt all the way, so they required some hand felting afterwards.

These bowls will dry quickly - today's sun and warm temps will see to that.
