Oh, that yarn bowl looks really nice! I'd love to win one. Although I'm a little bit disappointed that the yarn is not included... ;) The colours are so lovely. I guess I'll have to look for something similar here in Europe. Thanks for the giveaway!

Hi Alana: Glad you are pod-casting again! I have used a glass custard bowl for my yarns. My grandmother would have called it a 'sauce bowl'. I love the idea of having a yarn bowl that was also a work of art. Keep podcasting - you were missed!

Knitseveryday said...

Alana! So glad you are back podcasting, I missed listening to you and enjoyed this podcast very much.
I am curious..did you knit up any of tne dyed in the wool yarn? I also noticed it at Stitches and wondered what it looks like in fabric form.
I finished my Twigs and Willow sweater and it's lovely. I have somewhat large arms for my frame, so the sleeves are a bit tight, but it looks good. I will post a photo soon on Ravelry.
