Since I started crocheting, I’m constantly seeing projects I’d like to try. Although, I’ve had to take a break to give my hands a vacation especially after this project.
Crocheting over wire looked interesting in the form of a bowl. I bought a Caron Sweet Roll because I liked the ocean colors, but I had a little bit of trouble finding plastic covered wire cording. I ended up with plastic clothesline in white.
It was a bit fiddly to begin with. I think if I had gotten the wire I would have had a bit more control. But I managed to get the bowl shape with a little heavy hand and forming it over a bowl.
The pattern I had seen had a flat brim on the bowl, but when I followed their instructions it was a mass of curls. So, I tore it out and made my own brim which is a little wavy but not curly. I didn’t take a picture of the curly brim since I decided on impulse to rip it out.

I also found some fun new yarn called Scrubbie cotton yarn by Red Heart Lion. So, I made some cloths and and brillo like pads with several colors. The pad is made using a combination of cotton thread and the scrubbie yarn.
I made a couple in turquoise.
