I am still knitting fish and got the idea to try felting them. I am thinking it will make the increase stitches show less and make them a firmer object. I knitted 5 different color variations and took notes on the pattern, yarn and needle size. I put them in the washer with HOT water, a little soap and a couple of pairs of jeans. Then let them agitate for 7 minutes. Squeezed them out and into a bucket of cold water. Repeated this a few times.
They came out rather torpedo like......So I made some more, trying to exaggerate the length and the tail. Here they are before felting.
I also made some bunnies....felted everybody:
The striped fish and the gray bunny were gifts for my friend Mike's kids.
I am still working towards the perfect fish shape. Have been also knitting bunny accessories....
