Jewelry? I don't think so

I've been trying to make some felted bracelets.
So I knit the i-cord and it was a bit sloppy, but I thought felting it would help.

Lessons learnt
1 - the thicker you knit it, the better the end result (the yellow is two strands together)
2 - felting it takes longer than you think
3 - I need to practise i-cord
4 - I don't think I'd ever wear them (but I don't wear bracelets to start with)
They don't sit neat and round, so they possibly might not make it into my swap package.

Any hints?
