When I crochet, I generally have a plastic grocery bag full of yarn balls on the floor between my feet and I pull the yarn up from the bag.
A couple of years ago at an art fair, I saw a ceramic bowl with a swirly cut on the side and I just knew it was for yarn. I was tempted to buy it, but it felt like a splurge. A few months later I saw one in a yarn store. I still haven’t broken down and bought one, though I’m getting closer to taking the plunge.
So what’s a yarn bowl and how do you use it?
There are lots of yarn bowl manufacturers, and you can shop for them at your local yarn shop. (Yes! Let’s support those small businesses!) For the purpose of this article, I browsed on Etsy. Here are some I fell in love with (and a couple I didn’t).
Lots of yarn bowls are ceramic (you can click on the bowl’s description for a purchasing link–I do NOT make any money from these and make no claims about them):
Some beautiful wooden yarn bowls:
Animal themed yarn bowls:
And mythical beasts:
I usually love unicorns, but . . .
And one final disgusting one:
I love all but the last two. My favorites are all the wooden ones and the octopus.
