Here's my first attempt at a Mesa bowl. I knitted the body of the bowl with a very light gray Emu Finlandia. The top, an I-cord bind off, was knitted with a combination of "No Name" olive-colored wool and Lamb's Pride Pine Tree.













Here's the finished, felted bowl. The bowls knit up very fast and easily. I knitted a second, larger one last night in about two hours using Galway and Galway Paint. The wool isn't as fuzzy and I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out. Happy Knitting all.
