FO - Little container/bowl
I knit up this little bowl/container last night using the Tiny Treasures pattern with Patons SWS. I love the soft colors. I felted it and then stuck a tomato paste can inside to get a nice flat bottom. It's so cute and I think I'll send it to my friend for her birthday with a glass candle holder and votive inside. It should be a perfect fit!

Very very cute and would look great with what you described or a tiny little plant in a holder would look cute in it too.

That is adorable! I love the colors! What a great way to use up leftover yarn too!

I love it, its so cute, i would be careful about putting a candle in it, even in a glass votive holder, they can get HOT
I just happen to have some SWS left over, might haveto make a couple things like that

Very cute, but I too would be careful with a candle (even if in a votive) in it.
