felted crochet cat basket

this is Sophie checking out the size of the basket before and after felting. Before the stitches and rows are quite distinct. After, it has thickened up considerably, shrunk by about a third of the diameter and the stitches and rows can't be distinguished.
I think the next one [ if there is one] will have higher sides, but for a first effort and for a pattern that was made up as I went, it's not too damn bad!! I probably should write the pattern down before I forget what I did.
Still getting over the flu... David stayed in bed watching tv until 6pm ... so a lazy day today. I knitted 2 Mobius scarves and planned the next quilt. The bare minimum of housework was done... no surprise there.
