Okay, here are the completed baby derbies. I am so impressed with the Cascade 220 - it felted so much quicker than the Knitpicks Merino. I am still looking for a bowl with the right circumference for the other hat.

Here are my newest felting projects, pre-felting. A colleage and I knitted these hats from Knit One, Felt Too; they are the baby derbies for another colleague's coming twin great-granddaughters. We used Cascade 220. On the right is a kind of chullo made from KnitPicks Merino Style.

I spent some time in the local WalMart measuring small plastic bowls to get something to put the baby hats over to keep them at the right size. I will be felting them tonight and then, when I find a bowl for the black hat, I will felt that. I will post pictures of the finished objects as soon as they dry.
