I am not an artist so stripes were the best I could do.
The outside is teal and speckled.
I know the bowl will get a lot of use and I like the colors. I consider the project to be a success.
In knitting news I am still not able to knit more than a few rows at a time. Instead of tiring out my back at work I am thinking I should quit my job and knit all day. If I could knit a functional house and car that might actually work.
I have been doing a lot of Ravelry surfing for patterns. I really like looking at what everyone makes. I highly recommend joining if you have not already.
I also picked up Barbara Walker’s book Knitting from the Top at the library. It was mentioned at Knit Lawrence that she has a method for knitting top down set in sleeve sweaters while simultaneously knitting the sleeves. I have read through her instructions and think I understand. I would really like to try this method of sweater construction soon. It sounds like fun.
