Felted Balls

I saw this great post (i forget where now) on making a felt checkers board and than felting rocks as the checkers. i have been wanting to make it but i had no idea were to start on felting. I wanted to start with making felted balls and searched high and low for a how to. i found this girls tutorial and headed to Joanns to get my wool roving. it took about an hour but i had 8 felted balls. They were pretty fun to make. When all was said and done i strong some of the balls and made a necklaces. 

Next time i want to attempt some felted ornaments i saw in a book last week. 

Have you ever felted? What have you made?
