Yarn Ball Bowl


I've been trying out different glazes. This reminds me of Early American dishes. I should make a yarn ball set with matching yarn domes - those upside-down bowls that cover yarn balls with a hole for the strand of yarn - so the ball doesn't roll under your couch. Wouldn't a matching teapot be lovely with blue yarn woven around it? I can't make teapots yet.

Love the blue and white and the way the yarn trails off the ball.

you make lovely bowls so i'm sure you can make a teapot! i've made a few of them and i'm no master potter.

Have you seen redware from out thissaways? I think it's Amish--deep red Lancaster County clay. Ooo, look at this pie plate. A yarn ball on the bottom would remind you to knit after you have a slice.

Really lovely... it reminds me of my Chinese lucky carp dishes that I purchased in Chinatown, NYC when I got my very first place... it's traditional yet unexpected!

Late to the party here but garsh, that's working for me! So pretty.

This glaze is very pretty! I think the bowls designed to hold yarn are neat looking, but I'd be afraid of breaking it while knitting...
