Leaf Amphora

Another experimental object. I have no animals to make at the moment, so this continues my idea of artefacts in an imaginary tomb. It has a good deal of internal capacity, well-padded: it's pleasing as an object, but it can also be used to contain smaller things.

It's an undyed organic Welsh wool, I think - certainly undyed - but I've mislaid the ball band and don't remember the brand or breed. It might be the Grey-Faced Dartmoor from Garthenor, and I probably bought it from iKnit, although it doesn't seem to be stocked in the online shop. I think the greyish oatmeal colour, with dark brown hairs, is very easy on the eye. It makes lovely housewares.
