My husband, Seth, discovered Top Gear UK is on Netflix (he's a car enthusiast)... 17 seasons of them. Oh yeah. While we were watching it last night I got the itch to make something. Who knew transatlantic car shows from 2003 were so inspirational?

I purchased my jute after reading Uncommon Crochet (the link is to a review, I hope to have my Amazon links up and running soon) and was simply inspired! The jute I purchased, however, is crazy difficult to work with. Fortunately, it's thick so it doesn't take many stitches to work it up into something delightful!
A teensy basket! Well, it was more like the size of a cereal bowl. But it was so cute and worked up so fast I wanted to make a bunch!
I was royally sick of the jute after just 5 rounds, so I ran up for my left overs of cotton and proceeded to scribble out a pattern...
Emphasis on the scribble.
The cotton, being a thinner yarn, required a smaller hook and came out truly teensy (and adorable).
It's pretty remarkable the difference your yarn makes. But I'll refrain from actually remarking on it.
So I made a 3rd. And I've just started a fourth. They're each getting bigger (as nesting bowls do) and I'm making them a tad more interesting by finishing them off with different borders. A nice WIP (work in progress) for the weekend.
My plan is to have a legitimate pattern (unless anyone is interested in some illegible scribbles? Anybody? Nobody?) for sale on Etsy by sometime on Monday. Check back then!
Happy (Hurricane!) Hooking, everybody!
