My Creative Space.

My creative space this week is all about the bowls.

I love making these bowls.

I start each one with no idea how it will turn out in the end.
How many rounds I will crochet for the circumference of the base.
How many colours I will use.
If I will add a pattern or keep to the single crochet.

They sort of speak to me as I go.

The shell bowl.

The pointy bits bowl.

The bobble bowl.


The bowl Bren asked me to make with a lid.

None of the bowls have had their tails woven in yet but they have already been used as hats, as stacking blocks, and to store little bits and pieces in.

  2. Beautiful as always Kate, the way you describe the process makes me thing of a potter at a wheel, shaping and moulding.

  3. These bowls are great! Its hard to tell how big they are, but they remind of a trend in Sweden recently of having fabric bread bowls. Very similar to your bowls. Could be a possible use for them?

  6. They all look great. I think my fave is the bobble bowl. Are you going to felt any of them or will they shrink too much.

  9. They're great bowls! I especially like the one with the lid:-)

    BTW, it's probably the end of broccoli season here too, we're just hopeless at planting things on time :-)

  11. The bowls are a very clever idea. Usually when I start crocheting in the round I am always thinking about an animal.
    Sorry to lead you astray on the hedgehog. Maybe I need to make a real hedgehog to photograph with the chocolate hedgehog.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  15. Is there such a thing as crocheter's anonymous? For the seriously addicted? If not there should be! I could certainly join up! Then again there are worse things to be addicted to....Love the bowls especially the bobbly one.

  26. Great colors! I've been contemplating some crochet bowls myself, but I've yet to get to it.

  27. Kate your bowls are amazing but what I love the most is that they 'talk' to you. To just start and know there is an end, but to not be sure how you'll get there is fantastic. You made me smile at this thought! xx

  28. Very nice colour combination, very clever!

    ReplyDelete
  29. The bowls are fantastic! Crochet is such a mystery to me so I really admire your patience and skill in getting making these.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
