What are you most proud of? I love the swirly top ("hair") on the berry. I think it gives it lots of character.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? While a swatch isn't necessary, felting is different for everyone because of the yarn used, pH of the water, detergent and type of washing machine. Knit and felt a 4"x4" swatch so you have some idea of what your results will be BEFORE knitting your project. If you have questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
