Bird yarn bowls

Bird yarn bowls

I’ve been neglecting the blog since October! Since then I’ve introduced new bird yarn bowls into my Etsy shop! These are intended to be a signature style because of course they look like little wrens with upright tails. They’re the smaller bowl shaped yarn bowl and can be ordered from any of the colours on the glaze chart.

Every one is made and decorated by hand so sometimes they have a slightly different personality! The pieces are hand thrown and then the tails and beaks attached once the pot is leather hard. They’re ideal for weights of yarn up to 50 grams of double knit weight. The curve for yarn on these runs the opposite way to the star bowls an if your working with a very fine yarn you could even run it through one of the eyes.

It’s January – somehow the bleakest month of the year now that the parties over, when dark days seem to be endless and spring a world away. To bring a bit of midwinter cheer I’m giving away a ‘wool’ style yarn bowl glazed in smokey blue reflecting those oh so blue January days.

Along with the bowl is a hank of Artesano yarn in 4ply, it’s rich purple colour is listed as Paraguay. It’s lovely and soft to the touch being 100% superfine Alpaca, the hank is 50 grams or 184 metres in length if you want to plan what you’re going to knit with it once you’ve won!

New yarn bowl styles – the love heart and ‘wool’

In my last post I mentioned there were three new styles of yarn bowl on their way to the shop. Not to keep you waiting any longer here’s the second and third style!

These two new styles are more like the larger barrel shaped yarn bowls that I make and if you came to see me at The Knitting and Stitching show you make have been quick enough to get yourself one. The ‘wool’ yarn bowl proved to be a popular choice and I’ve decided to keep it around in the collection.

New yarn bowl styles – ‘little star’

If you’ve been following some of my postings over on Twitter and Facebook you might have noticed that over the last 3 months I’ve been working on some new styles of yarn bowls. This is the first of three new styles and it’s quite different from other yarn bowls currently in stock.

It’s called Little Star and it’s size is much smaller than the standard size I currently make. I received a lot of requests for smaller yarn bowls when I was at The Knitting and Stitching show in Harrogate mainly from sock and lace knitters but this bowl is also ideal for summery cottons too.
