Pottery And Projects

I just had to show off what we picked up from the show. Plus show off what we picked up 4 or 5 years ago. It's from Ephraim Faience Pottery and I just love the koi fish.
So the new pot is on the left and I love the color. The shape is perfect and look how the tail flips up over the lip on top. I still love the other pot too. Not as flashy and a different interpretation on the tail but I like how the tail creates an empty space on the lip of the pot. We both love koi fish and these are retired if you are interested in purchasing them. I know the green pot is up on ebay for sale.
We also have a koi plate and a big planter which I think came from the Bombay company. I think my love for this fish came from working for my professor. Who had 2 koi ponds, one in his house and one outside. They are just the neatest fish and it is so cool to watch them eat.
I'm working on multiple projects which is sometimes hard to juggle. Left over yarn socks for my youngest, my brother's scarf and ornaments.
Talking about projects, if you love socks Lotus Knits is doing a sock club. It hasn't started yet but keep checking her blog for details. I am definitely interested in this.
On my trip down I finished the 2nd pair socks from my left over sweater yarn. They are waiting to be washed and they really not worth taking a picture of. They are that ugly. I knitted them smaller because I've noticed that the first pair fit perfect at first. Now that I wear them a lot they are stretching out. They don't seem to be bouncing back even after washing them. They are knit from Mission Falls 1824 wool and I've noticed that the sweaters I knit for my daughter's seem to really stretch too much. So it's probably the yarn not me.
