Bowls

bowls for craft fair
The bowls have been shrunk after numerous runs through the washing machine. Now they have to dry and be shaved.... not my favorite part. Actually, I think my obsession with knitting these is over.

People have been buying these as fast as I can make them - but the fascination of knitting, shrinking, then shaping is gone.

Next week I have to finish knitting a few more gift items. Maybe I'll save the knitting until the pajama sewing is done, then while my machine is at the shop for a check-up I'll have something to do.

Pattern from the book - One Skein by Leigh Radford (affiliate link).

  1. Those bowls are awesome! How long does it take you to crank one out?

  2. I didn't know where to reply....

    It takes under an hour to knit one - I double strand the yarn and use size 15 needles, cast on about 40 stitches. After about 5" I close up the bottom with gradual decreases & then on to the washing machine.
    I started them by following the pattern in the OneSkein book and since then, I just do whatever I remember, wherever I am with my needles and yarn.
