I recently signed up for a yarn subscription box from Darn Good Yarn, and got my first box on Friday.  When you sign up, you can choose to add a 'mystery item' for an additional $5, that is normally sold for more.  Since I like surprises, and I like being pushed out of my comfort zone craft-wise, I added the item, and waited to see what came.  My mystery item turned out to be a beautiful roll of wide sari silk ribbon!  I searched their site, and found a great pattern for a bowl made out of the same ribbon, so I whipped that up yesterday.  The pattern called for a 10mm hook, but I had only a 9 or an 11.5.  The 11.5 kept catching on the work, so I switched to the 9mm (an aluminum hook) which worked much better, but still it was harder than my poor hands liked.  While the project was small and should have been very quick, I had to take breaks to rest my hands.  It had nothing to do with the ribbon, it is just hard to crochet through while keeping your stitches very tight so the bowl will stand up on its own.  All in all I'm very happy with how it came out, and I'd happily make another one in future, after my fingers rest up a bit.  Cheesy

Nice!

I was gifted a bunch of sari yarn..it is a bit scratchy, so a bowl like this would be an excellent thing to use it for!

Thanks for the idea and the pattern link...looks good on your dark countertop!

Thanks!  I have a few rolls of thinner ribbon yarn that was bought for a project in grad school.  I overestimated how many I'd need, and now have 3 or 4.  I've never known what to do with them over the last 10 years, but now I think I might see if I can turn them either into bowls, or mats to use them up.  (Putting craft supplies *back* into my craft room has me wanting to bust a good deal of my stash!)

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
