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):

LOL! Yeah, it's okay to see it. I'm just going to give it to Indigo next time we all get together; it wasn't meant to be a surprise. It did turn out cute, though, didn't it? Would you like a hat to go with it? And if so, which colors (one, two or three colors) would you like? :)
