A bowl made of yarn

Hurray for the weekend!! I've become one of those people that starts counting down for the weekend on Monday. I'm not proud of the fact, but I might as well own it.

Last week I was off work for a few days with a terrible cold/sinus infection that wouldn't leave me alone. I wanted to do some fiber art, but I couldn't think clearly enough to work on any of my projects I have on the go. I decided that I would use up some stash yarn and attempt to crochet myself a yarn bowl.

The logic behind this is that I knit straight from the ball if it is a store bought mass manufactured skein like the one below. I don't bother to rewind them into a ball. I'm waaaaaaaay too lazy. And the oval shaped ball won't fit in my pottery yarn bowl. And it just wasn't working in the basket. So the yarn-yarn bowl was born.

It is a free pattern on Ravelry. The yarn is held double to make it more sturdy. The green yarn is very sturdy, the blue yarn is not. So there is a lot of give in the bowl, but it still works just fine. I hope you have a lovely weekend with lots of wonderful fiber-filled goodness!


  1. That bowl is a great idea.
    I'm always afraid I will break my pottery bowl...this would be perfect.

    Now? Do I have stiff yarn?

  2. Yarn yarn bowl, that is just too cute! It looks like it works great too! Did you knit it out of cotton yarn? Also, I'm so glad to hear that you are starting to feel better.

  3. That's a very cool yarn bowl. I tend to throw my yarn in shopping bags that stand up straight, seems to be the only way to keep them still.

  4. Lovely! I quite like this idea! x


I love comments almost more than chocolate. Now that is saying something.
