Bowls, bowls, bowls

Its been too long since I've posted. Due to ongoing illness, stress of new job and life, I just haven't had a second to post. But I have been knitting slowly and steadily. And adding to my yarn stash. Let me say that Dani's stash is miniscule compared to mine. I'm actually considering destashing the yarn that has no intended projects. But I have to think more on that.

I've started making bowls! Let me say that I love bowls. They are my favorite shape. I have bowls from many of my trips in many different materials, but I had no felted bowls! I made four in one week, felted them and have given three away! I have just done one more and hope to make two or three more this week to start stashing for Christmas presents. I love bowls. Here's some photos:

The blue and green bowl is not photogenic. Its also not my favorite. Its too tall and looks odd to me. I've learned a lot from making bowls. If you want to know more, please comment with your email or contact information and I'll respond.

I've almost finished the baby blanket for a friend of mine. And my mom's Christmas present. Now I just have everyone else's to work on. Next are felted ballerina slippers for my nieces!

I went to Flock and Fiber in Canby Oregon in September. It was a great fiber festival. Tons of yarn and people. I resisted strongly until I found some yarn I couldn't live without! I'm not yet sure what I'm doing with it. I think I'm making a felted purse with the two skeins and probably bowls with the light yellow if it will felt!

Dani sent a pair of socks to our friend Susan for her birthday. I know that Susan loves them. Dani, post a photo already! More postings as projects finish. And practice with the flash! Stay well.

It's about time! Ha. I actually like the blue bowl, at least from these photos. Please make note of the details of your refining technique so I can have them. Doesn't have to be here. -lv

I'll go look them up! She is so happy with them. She couldn't gush enough and Susan is no gusher!

I am so glad that she loeves them. It makes me happy to know that she finally got something as a surprise that she likes. She's one tough cookie when it comes to gift ideas. She has or makes everything she wants!
