Yarn Bowls

IF i love yarn AND i love handmade pottery, THEN i love, love yarn bowls. And i do.

I also love soup. Which goes in bowls, preferably of the hand thrown pottery variety. But this post is not about soup. We’ll get to that next winter. Cross my heart.

I could describe a yarn bowl in words, but it’s better just to show you and let you have the pleasure of going, “Ah-ha!”

Yes, gentle readers, if you’ve ever yanked a ball of yarn and then chased it under a sofa (or chased the cat who chased it under the sofa) you will understand the function of a yarn bowl.

Sure, I can make a frugal yarn holder from an empty coffee can with a hole cut in the lid, but aren’t these beauty-ous?  These are just four of the many others I found on Etsy. If anyone is looking for a birthday/Christmas/Etsyversary/just-because gift for me…need I say more? I probably needn’t, but I will mention that Common Stone has the CUTEST little paw print pendant. ;-)

    I have never heard of yarn bowls, but I certainly like what I see! Definitely more attractive than a milk jug or coffee can. :-) I just might have to look into getting one of those.

      Oh right…milk jugs! I forgot about that frugal idea. :-)

      I’ve decided my bowl will need a lid…to keep out the cat hair. :-\

    It occurred to me that you might get clear glass inserts for your yarn bowls, preferably that sort of glass that withstands heat, and use them to house the soup, and the bowls to house the glass inserts. That way you can peek at carrots and shrimp and other good things in the soup through some of the slits in your yarn bowls. It’s always nice to have a second way of finding pleasure from the same thing, don’t you think?

      heeheehee! I’m game for anything that lets me eat more soup, Donna!
