I found this bowl easy to make as you only need to know how to make the single crochet stitch and increase. Bunny mummy has a good tutorial here to make similar bowls. I don't like counting the rounds though, so mine is free style! I used a polyacrylic yarn (I fell in love with the colour and had to use it regardless of what it was made from!) so my bowl is quite soft, but it holds its shape well enough for my purpose. What do you think?
At the start of this month we got some proper snow, it snowed for a whole day covering everything in white. It only lasted a few days and now it is all gone but luckily I got some photos so I can remember how pretty everything was...
From; Bound & Determined: A Visual History of Corsets, 1850--1960
I thought I'd share this fascinating Ad from 1942 for "wonderful Jantzen panty-girdles" from the book Bound & Determined: A Visual History of Corsets. The underwear women wear today seem so free when compared with some of the corsets which were commonplace in the past. Corsets were a way to achieve a desired shape, usually a cinched waist and flat stomach. This, however, came with the price of discomfort and restriction. To look your best for an occasion -sure but for everyday, no thanks!
Stuff You Missed in History Class have done a fun podcast on corsets and things, if you are interested you can check it out here.
