Felted crocheted bowls

My latest venture is to explore felted bowls. I used pure wool yarn - some roving, some tightly plied, other woollen. I crocheted, then machine washed in hot water, but as I have a front loading machine, not a top loader with an agitator, the bowls did not get thrashed around very much. However, here they are drying on top of all the various forms I could find in the kitchen, and we will see how they turn out.
