I fell down the rabbit hole of pinterest for a while, doing some research on yarn bowls. You see, I've knitted for a long time, but I've never used a yarn bowl. Luckily for me, the interwebs has every possible and fun kind of yarn bowl to use as a study guide. Yarn bowls are a way to keep a ball of yarn from rolling away from you as you knit, to keep them off the floor, and to keep kitties from losing their minds and making a knotted mess of your yarn. There are different styles of yarn bowls, but ideally they have a some sort of guide for the yarn to pull out of the bowl while the ball rolls around inside. I threw several test bowls and they mostly worked. Some a little too small, but still functional.
But, the clay gods have finally smiled down on me again and I can show off some new beauties!
