A colleague likes purple, so I made these "bowls" for her. Needless to say, I started them some time ago (at least it was this year!), and finished them up last night. I used a pretty basic pattern for the base and sides. The relative sizes show up much better in the top photo; the purple bowl is really not as big as it looks in the bottom photo.
To make the big bowl a bit sturdier (and also to link all three together), I crocheted the sides using both light and dark purple yarns together. I like! I hope she does, too.
