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♥
