A few days after my birthday, This little beauty showed up on my doorstep. It's a yarn bowl for knitting. The yarn is threaded through the top star down to the big star. Then your ball of yarn stays in the bowl instead of rolling all over the floor. Isn't this a great gift? My best friend from Junior High and High School sent it to me. She lives in our hometown, went to a local potters and found this. It is so special to me because it was so unexpected, a gift from one of my 'bestest' friends who also knits, and it was made in my hometown. It doesn't get much better than this! Thanks Karen!
Now onto the finished project!
I had posted pictures (post before last) of my shawlette '198 yards of Heaven' pre-blocking. Now that it's blocked, you can make out all the details. I really did like this once I figured out the pattern. I would probably make another one, but it would have to be bigger. This is not nearly as big as I would like.
