Merging two loves – yarn and clay.By
Late night double posting today; I wanted to share some things I just got out of the kiln – these are yarn bowls and yarn bells for knitting and crochet. The construction is simple and elegant, you place your ball of yarn either in the bell or in the bowl, thread your yarn through the groove and knit away! The pottery keeps your ball turning smoothly while you work, keeping it dust and pet-free, while also preventing it from rolling away on you. I’ve tried out each one myself, and they work like a charm :)
*Post Update* – these beauties are now available at the Purple Purl here in Toronto. They got a mention in Canadian Living Magazine and people love them =o) Want to order one, but don’t live in Toronto? Have a custom request? Email me at email@example.com! Or click here to see my latest pieces =o)
Very pretty! I’ve never used one before, but they seem like a very good idea. I love the one photographed with the orange yarn! Beautiful colours.
These are just beautiful!! I love them. You have such a wonderful eye with all your art. I would love to have one of these, even if it just sat on a shelf, they glow!
I bought one of these at a craft fair and I love it…attractive and practial. When you have a ball of yarn and it’s coming from the outside (as opposed to inside the ball), it’s great for keeping it under control. One word of warning…if you have a cat, buy the bell! My cat keeps stealing the ball out of the bowl…:)
[…] Yarn bowls and bells from The Blue Brick. They're lovely – I've seen them in person at The Purple Purl. A great gift idea for your favourite knitter. […]
