Bowling for Yarn

For ages, I have searched for the perfect yarn bowl.  I know what you’re thinking.  “How hard can it be?  It’s just a bow with a weird squiggle thing for the yarn.  What’s the big deal?”  Oh no, my friends, you are mistaken.  It is entirely a big deal.

I searched high and low.  I looked at wooden bowls, but deemed to fraught with the peril of splinters to hold my fabsome yarns.  I looked at ceramic bowls, lovingly thrown by their creators only to discover that the color was off *just* a bit or the bowl was wobbly looking, or too small, or too big, or out of stock.  You see where this is taking me?  My frustration!  My despair.

And then, a miracle.  A wonderful little shop near my home stocked yarn bowls.  Granted these bowls were unencumbered by either splinters or paint, but I was determined to end my quest.

Behold!  My yarn bowl!

I would love to tell you that I made this entire thing; that I was up to my eyeballs in clay shaping this little bowl like a champ.  I was not.  Instead, I was up to my eyeballs in paint choices and I applied them like a boss.  I am the first to admit that I’m no artist.  I’m a pretty half-ass painter at best, but I love my little bowl.  The color is soothing and I really like the little speckles on the inside.  All in all, I’d say this little guy was worth the wait.
