I think I mentioned some time ago that I fell head over heels for crocheting. (And I haven't really shown you anything I've created -- I'm starting to fix that!)
I have always had a thing for fabrics. Yarn is a natural extension of that.
I made these nesting bowls as a gift and really like how they came out!
The colors have so much personality here! And I really liked seeing the shape form as I completed each row.
As you can imagine, each bowl got just a smidgen bigger. (smidgen is such a fun word!)
You know how you make something with the intent to give them as a gift... and then they are done and you secretly wish you could keep them?
Yup, that happened to me with these.
I've seen this type of bowl done with a different colored bottom... it was a really cool affect! I think the next time around I will give that a try.
It doesn't help that I already have a love for bowls.
Or the fact that I could see a million uses for these.
Or, that the colors matched my living room so well.
Wouldn't a plant pot be really adorable with one of these bowls nested around it?
At least I know the maker and I guess if I really wanted I could whip myself up a couple of these!!
I finished the set off with a ribbon for giving away. So darling!!
It was really really tough to let them go.
But, I got an even better feeling to see one of my favorite people light up in a huge smile once I gave them to her!
Making something with your own two hands and then sharing it with someone you really like = happiness!
