Moebius Basket and Bowl

I finally finished knitting and felting a moebius basket and a bowl. There were both made with Filatura Lanarota Kaleidoscope yarn which is 100% extra fine merino wool. I may have felted them a bit too much but they hold their shape well.

Above is the bowl, made from the blue and purple color, with felted and pre-felted views including a view of the bottom of the bowl. The decreases make such a lovely pattern when knit and after felting the colors blend together to look like a water color painting.

Below that is the basket with the felted and pre-felted photos using the multi-shade green yarn.
