Mugs again

I handbuilt a few mugs yesterday, using the extruder and some stamps. The extruded shape was sort of wonky and narrow so I spun it around a rolling pin for a little bit before adding a bottom and handle. They are still wonky. Should be interesting. 30 Clay

And now for something completely different... Wool bowls

I like to make bowls. The bowl form was the first success I had when I took up pottery, and it makes me happy to think about people using the bowls I have made.

I wanted to try knitting a few wool bowls and for these, I used Noro Rainbow Rolls. The rainbow rolls are not spun yarn, so they are very tender, and pull apart easily. They felt up great! The colors repeat in such a way that you can have an inside outside effect if you knit long enough.

I think these make interesting little containers.

So cozy!

This yarn is so soft!

I made a hat out of super bulky weight merino from Malabrigo. This is Malabrigo Caracol. Great ebay find. Lots of texture and the merino is incredibly soft.

Hats, so many hats

I guess I am the kind of person who likes short term projects. I've been making hats lately. These hats go quickly because I am also using bulky or super bulky yarn.

That's okay.

I thought we were on a break!

Kind of sick of the mugs, so I am taking a break. I gave a lot of them away at Christmas and that was fun, and lightened the load literally and psychologically. You just don't want to have so many boxed up, waiting for a home.
