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!
