Felted Lamb - My first felting project
Felted Lamb from Donna Kooler's "Encyclopedia of Knitting". It says here the pattern is by Bev Galeskas.

Sooo cute. Everyone wants one now. I'm booked up.

Working on a lighter colored one now.

Any suggestions on how I could make them better?

That is just adorable! I have no trouble believing you're all booked up now! I have no suggestions on how to make it better, mostly because it looks just perfect to me!

Looks perfect to me, too! The only way it could look better is if it was in my possession! The face is so cute!!!

Oh My Gosh!! That is just the cutest!! I love Ingrid's comment too!

What yarn did you use? I have heard that white yarn is sometimes hard to felt, but clearly yours worked rather well.

I can't find the label right now, the ladyfriend may have "cleaned it up". It's natural undied wool, I remember It had the words "ecological wool" in big bold letters, on the label.

Color makes a difference!? FYI the yarn is not white, my camera has it's own view of the world. It's more of a very light grey. I'm working on another with an even lighter color, I hope it felts ok.

I think this one felted pretty well, but I have no prior felting experience to base that feeling on. You can't see individual stitches, but on close inspection he appears to be ribbed. You can see the individual rows, but i've seen felted purses in the yarn shop and they look similar. I wonder if I were to use larger needles if they would felt any better.
