Project 365 - Recent Craft Projects

I want to get caught up with Project 365, and also post a few extra photos. I'll do them in groups - this one features a few of the craft projects that I've finished recently.

This is a "felted" bowl I made from some Manos de Uruguay yarn (I adore these colors, and liked working with the yarn; I have more of it, in two different colorways). It started out looking sort of like a floppy hat (diameter here, about 11 inches):

After running it through a the washing machine with hot water, I shaped it inside a pan, and left it for several days to dry completely:

And here is the finished bowl (which shrunk to about 8 inches in diameter:

Here's another project, a sweater I made for Mookie (size 2 years). I think it turned out pretty cute - hopefully, it will fit her this winter:

Here are a few other projects (not 365 photos). A market bag I made, which will probably be given to one of my nieces for Christmas:

A little bag for my D&D dice (Amy, I used the rest of the yarn from the bag I made for you, so our two bags match):

OMG YOU ARE SO AWESOME. The bowl in particular is RAD.

In a totally UNRELATED question . . .

What is your favorite color, or favorite color combination?

I like purples and blues and reds, or bright greens and blues and purples, or greens and blues and yellows. Basically colors that make you think of the ocean at different times of the day.

Of course I have no idea why you're asking this.
