Bowls Before/After

I made samples of my Buttons and Beads Bowl pattern, for a few more shops recently. Folks who are knitting these are loving them. One student, Leslie, says she has made a dozen already. She says she will send photos.

My red/magenta/white/chocolate bowl is made with Kaleidoscope. It is on display at Threadbear Fiberarts in Lansing.

The purple bowl is made with Malabrigo Merino Worsted. 2bowls33.jpgIt is on display at Yarn Garden in Charlotte, Michigan.

These photos are before and after embellishing, though both photos are after felting. The Threadbear bowl has vintage shell buttons on it, and the Yarn Garden bowl has hand-blown glass beads in all sorts of sizes and variations on the color purple.

The original photo I showed you of this design was more subdued (rather than energetic). The teal and turquoise bowls in that photo (3rd image), are on display at Rae’s Yarn Boutique right now, along with a bowl made of Noro Kureyon. The purple one with beads I got to keep!

I had a lot of fun knitting these. They take just a little bit of knitting time, a negligible amount of yarn, and are great for gifting (or for holding your own button collection).
