I love how, with knitting, I can complete a project, from start to finish, in the car! On our way to Indiana Dunes Friday, I was able to knit this little bowl.
I have been wanting to make something like this for a while now. The pattern is from Rhythm of Family. I finally figured out the double pointed needles and I had some leftover yarn that I thought would work. I have a front loading machine so I think it doesn't felt things like a regular machine, but I am pleased with how it turned out. I have washed it twice and I think I will do it one more time. It's holding some of the treasures that we found during our camping trip. I'm working on another one that will be a little wider and not as deep.
I recently came across the book The Gentle Art of Knitting by Jane Brocket. I loved The Gentle Art of Domesticity and have checked it out from the library a couple of times. The Gentle Art of Knitting has a lot of things in it I would love to try and she has a way of writing which makes me think I actually could succeed. Then I saw that she has written some children's books too. Of course I ordered all of those from the library too! :)
