Ideas on how to stiffen up a bowl?

I've got a wild project in my head, but will need to find the best way to stiffen a knitted bowl. Starch first came to my mind, but afraid that it would be water soluable and wilt in high humidty.

And the brain cells keep on reeling...

not to mention writhing and fainting in coils.

*Someone* just had to pose the question if "doily B" from Nurhanne's YarnOver site could be extended to a shawl.

why, yes. Yes, it could.

Hello, men who knit. Sorry I haven't posted to my blog lately, it's not because I haven't been knitting, that's for sure.

Arrrr, me pretty! I've got ye now!

A while ago, I'd started the Fan Kimono from Knit Kimonos by Vicki Square. I kept running into problems with it and couldn't pinpoint just where I was going wrong.

Aran Weight Victorian Lace Shawl

As you can see, I dropped my latest project for a different one. I ran across the Aran Weight Victorian Lace Shawl by Michelle Ciccariello on elann's website and knew I had to make it.

Jedward led me to a site called Yarnover where I found this pattern. I used #6 cotton made here in Mexico and 3.25mm needles. It was a fun and fast project.

For the life of me, I cannot tink a stitch! I have tried and tried and end up having to frog the whole damn piece! Any good advice on learning how to unknit and unpurl stitch by stitch?
