Bobbles and Bowls

This started out as the Spoked Hat from the Winter 2010 Interweave Knits. Not having the right sized needles, it ended up big. Really big. So I frogged the crown shaping back, did a few more rows of the established pattern, then repeated the first row, with the bobbles. Now, it is a spoked cowl. The yarn is a handspun, handdyed alpaca blend. There is enough left over, I could actually knit the hat too. Or maybe I'll do some fingerless mitts, using the same stitch pattern.

My second bowl from pottery class along with some tomatoes from the garden. They were picked green and are slowly ripening. The bowl is blue with some transparent purple on the inside and slopped over the side. I was trying to get more of the purple on the outside too, but I'll take what I can get!

Lovely blues--the bowl is very nice. And tomatoes, yet? Amazing.

Ooooh, pretty. And, yes, both beautiful blues. The knitting looks so soft.

The simple beauty of the cowl and the bowl (involuntary pause to think about how those two words should rhyme, but don't) is refreshing.
It must feel deeply satisfying to have your tomatoes in your own handmade bowl.
