Oops, I finished this last week, put it on my blog, and forgot to post here! 

This is "Sunburst Bowl," a tapestry crochet pattern Carol Ventura wrote for Crochet Today magazine (Sept/Oct '08).  It took a couple months (and the entire DVD boxed set of Monty Python's Flying Circus  Grin) to do, and while it wasn't that hard, all those threads kept getting tangled!  I got my husband to make me this holder out of six dowels screwed to a piece of plywood; it helped a little:



For some reason, no matter how much I iron (block) the bowl, it sags a bit on one side.  Maybe it's tighter or heavier on the other side somehow.  Still, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  It was quite the challenge!

That looks great and you got the added bonus of a good reason to watch all that Monty Python! P.S. the rack you hubby made is a good useful craft too!
