Columbine Yarn Bowl

It's been months since mom has done any knitting.   She didn't know what to knit.  All she knew is that she wanted to knit something - anything.   A scarf can always be used.

Mom loves Etsy.  She checks out handmade things on there all the time.
She decided one day to look for yarn bowls.  She has seen lots of wooden ones and some of them are just gorgeous but she wonders how they stay put and not dump the yarn as you're pulling on it.  Wood isn't really all that heavy.    And she wondered how a pottery one would work - and one that has a squatty bottom that made lots of contact with the floor.

She found the perfect yarn bowl!  It looks black and tan but it's actually a very dark forest green and it has a beautiful Columbine flower on it.
The potter, Miss Chaucy, lives in Colorado so she knows Columbine flowers well.
And when mom knits, we are constantly reminded of our friends, KB and Shyla and R, who also live in Colorado and post lots of beautiful Columbine flowers on their blog☺

 This is the back of the yarn bowl.   That slot really does work and this bowl does not tip over at all.   It's heavy and well made and so beautiful and mom absolutely loves it!
 You're being silly, mom~~
Miss Chaucy is also on facebook and as mom scrolled through her posts, she noticed that she does pumpkin pottery in the autumn.    I have a funny feeling this won't be the first and last time she she buys something from Miss Chaucy!

Love ya lots♥
Molly

That is lovely. If I knew how to knit, I might buy one.

But I have a question. Do you think I could convert it to a spaghetti bowl, and avoid having my pasta get all knotted while I slurp it out?

Also, I think it might help with that extra sauce that gets all over my face

Does this really work Mom, does the wool not get knotted inside?
I nose my Mum has often thought about getting sumthingy like this…..oh and she says, does it keep cheeky puppy paws out?

What an amazing idea, we don't have anything like that over here, you just left the yarn fall on the floor!! It looks lovely and I bet the pumpkin ones will be very bright. Have a Happy Wednesday you two. Hugs,Susie & Treacle xx

What a beautiful bowl. You are a great model for your mom's scarf. Maybe she will make it sized for you to help keep you warm in the winter.

Wow...we see our Mama looking real close at the little holes in the side and thinking about her current crochet project...We think she may be visiting Miss Chaucy's shop too!
