I thought a felted bowl would be just the thing! Prolly this bowl cuz it's real shallow and I can see what's what:
Another one of the bowls will 'hold' my camera accessories on the table in our trailer up in the mountains. I've been using a clunky basket for them, but only out of desperation. Prolly this bowl:
Another bowl will hold 'working' balls of yarn. I might put the felted bowl on the floor, and pull the yarn up from it. Prolly this bowl for that use:
I've knit two smaller bowls last night and today, but they aren't felted yet. They will be quite a bit smaller. They will hold miscellaneous knitting accouterments, too! Or maybe a single ball of working yarn. Especially the balls of yarn that roll around as you pull the working strand. Or maybe I'll use one of them for a "yarn wastebasket". To throw in yarn and thread tidbits that you trim and cut as you work.
Here they are, unfelted:
Modified from the original pattern quite a bit,
but decreases and general construction the same.
Here are my notes for the small bowls.
and Bowl #5
I can hardly wait to see how they SHAPE UP after felting!
