Pattern for Sale: Pandora's Box

Thursday, June 10, 2010
When Pandora opened her box, all of the evils of the world flew out, leaving hope behind to comfort her. These bowls are inspired by ancient Greek lidded vessels, use Peruvian yarn manufactured in the US, have a Russian name, and were originally featured in an Australian magazine. If the international nature of knitting doesn’t bring you hope, maybe you’ll find something to put in these lidded bowls that will!
