Dragged up from the depths of my stash, here we see a project started 3 years ago or more. I was poor and had recently started knitting. I kept seeing pictures of people with yarn bowls, but with no money to buy one I decided to make my own. After a quick google search I came up with this: cotton rope wrapped with yarn. Every inch or so I would wrap the row underneath to hold the thing together.

This project came and went and spent a lot of time hibernating. When I pulled it out on Sunday it only needed another 30 minutes of work. Tadah! Instant satisfaction.

My husband decided to wear it as a hat. I think he looks rather fetching. But then again, I am rather biased.


On the non-crafting front, I just bought the world’s most beautiful tea kettle.

Oh, ummmm. Ignore all that wool. It’s just from Three Waters Farm. It’s not amazing or anything. *You are distracted by the tea kettle*
