Some of you might remember that I’m a potter. That I worked professionally as one for something like 10 years. I don’t think I’ll ever not be a potter even if I’m not making much pottery these days. I always feel more calm when my hands are in a lump of clay. I just love it. When I can’t be working I take pleasure in using the pottery of mine and others. So today I dug up some knit/sheep related Pottery:
Sheep and knitting mug!
Kendig Cottage Very pretty sheep pottery
Knitting Needle Jar
Little Ceramic Sheep So sweet!
Caroline Smith Pottery Really pretty landscapes with sheep.
Knitwear pottery This is a must see, it looks like Aran vases and such. Very pretty indeed.
Ebay has some really nice McCoy spinning wheel planters. There seems to be a ton of them. They are wicked cute though.
This one isn’t exactly pottery but I have to mention it. It’s the most beautiful hand knit “pottery”. It’s all knit and it’s certainly very cool.
If you are looking for some other spinning collectible – something like a photo,a lamp or a charm…. There are a ton on EBAY.
I have one of those really cute lamps.
I got it as an early Xmas present from my friends Scott and Mindy. Thank you again guys, it’s super cute.
A vest for Miss 7 going on 20. Trying to make as many projects for her that are not those awful socks. Ok, I’ll still probably finish one pair of socks but certainly not both in that awful yarn. Don’t think I’m bashing all acrylic – the other 2 projects for her are mostly acrylic. I am bashing Jiffy. It has to be my least favorite acrylic ever. I’d rather knit with Red Heart that everyone else bashes. I’ll have more info about the vest on my Ravelry for those that are curious.
And I’ve been spinning:
Darn flash made it look brighter than it is. It’s Corriedale in the colorway Thunderstorm. Just a 2 ply that will be nice for socks or some such. We’ll see what I actually end up doing with it.
