Felted Pots

I decided to make a few felted pots to use as containers for my Purim gifts this year. They were lots of fun to make, knitting up rapidly in mindless fashion, at every opportunity I had. Mostly I knitted them in the car when I didn't have to think about a thing, just move my hands in rhythmic fashion around my yarn and needles. I found I could knit each one in an hour or so - According to my husband,however, they are neither quick nor economical because I repeatedly put them in the washing machine again and again, trying to achieve the best felted fiber. While ultimately neither super fast to complete nor really cost effective, I really enjoyed the creative process though ultimately they were neither super fast to make nor really cost effective. In the end though, I have all of these charming little pots which I am now reticent to part with - they look so adorable displayed on my sideboard, a bevy of colorful bowls to decorate my home.

Yanno... you could continue the pot shape and add a mobius handle to it, and it's not that far off from those little loop-through bags I do.

Everything in your salon is so beautiful!

Great bowls. I would have loved to receive my goodies in a bowl like yours! I think it was a very creative idea!
