This is my first time felting. There seems to be lots of indentations in the felt and I wondered if I was doing something wrong? Maybe I was poking too hard? I'll try and post a picture.

It's supposed to look smoother like this: http://www.maplerose.ca/Ladybug_Need...ting%20kit.htm

Maybe you need a smaller needle?

That's a good idea. I bought a kit that came with only one needle, but I could try another size. I would have went back to the store sooner, but it's 7 hours away! I wish there was a closer store.

I think you can order them online. Probably woirth the shipping if the nearest store is 7 hours from you.
