Sorry, due to high demand, this piece is BACK-ORDERED until approx. LATE SEPT 2012. However you can still order it, either for yourself, of as a gift for someone else. Why buy something you don't want just because the piece you want is temporarily unavailable? Get the piece you really want or the gift you really want to give even if it takes a bit longer!
If you are purchasing it for yourself, just do so and it will arrive just as soon as I am able to make it. I wish I could please everybody and have an unlimited amount of pieces to send out, but these pieces are really unique and handmade and cannot be mass produced in a quicker method than I already do. At this time I expect to ship this item in LATE SEPT 2012. It is possible it will be ready sooner, but cannot be guaranteed.
*AS A GIFT
If you wish to purchase this item as a gift for a date prior to the expected delivery date, I will be happy to provide you with a full color digital image of the bowl you can print out at any digital photo lab with a short note explaining that this bowl has been purchased as a gift, that it is back-ordered, and that it is on it's way as soon as possible. I have a special BIRTHDAY version of this "placeholder" gift card that I can e-mail to you on request.
I can also provide you with a physical card including the photo of the bowl which you can send to the recipient for an additional $2.50 fee. Or I can mail the card directly to the recipient including a SHORT message from you. If you want this option please ask for it in the notes to seller during checkout, so I know to invoice you for the additional $2.50. Also please mention if you want the card mailed to you (blank) or directly to the recipient and any message you want included. Please also mention any specific desired delivery dates, birthdays, special days etc. This way I can try and deliver by this date, although of course any date prior to the anticipated delivery date listed cannot be guaranteed. I have a special BIRTHDAY version of the physical "placeholder" card.
AT THIS POINT DUE TO THE LARGE NUMBER OF ORDERS I HAVE RECEIVED
DELIVERY OF THE ACTUAL BOWL WILL BE IN LATE SEPT 2012
*******MADE TO ORDER, FOR DELIVERY IN LATE SEPT 2012*******
As seen at Vogue Knitting LIVE in LA (September 23-25 2011)
It is approx. 7 1/2 to 8 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches tall. Very large and useful yarn bowl.
Here is some recent feedback left by more satisfied customers:
"I LOVE MY BOWL, wonderful quality, every surface smooth and shiny. It's big enough I can use it for any bulky large hanks of yarn....I'm going to get me some more asap, Cyn"
(...and she just did!!)
"The handcrafting is amazing! Bowl is much larger than I had expected, which is PERFECT! Thank you so much, my wife LOVES IT!!"
"Absolutely the best yarn bowls out there, and I've been looking a lot"
"Photos don't do this justice. So pretty in person, and my friend LOVED receiving it."
"It's so beautiful! It's so useful! It's already supporting a scarf underway. It's bigger than I thought but then I hadn't thought too hard about the size that it would be to contain two balls. I'm using the open slit and it guides the yarn without snagging. Very well made, wonderful glaze and a very pretty cutout design. Thanks so much!"
This lovely dark purple yarn bowl is made on the wheel and glazed with my beautiful Lavender Blush and moody effect glazes. Keeps Yarn Moving Freely and Easily .
-I am a fanatic knitter and I love to crochet, as you can see from my jewelry stores in my profile. Therefore I know that this yarn bowl would make a great gift, or wedding gift, for those knitters you love or just buy it for yourself. I am the designer of this and all the art deco handmade accessories found in this shop.
Just place the yarn ball in the yarn bowl and pull the thread through the slot as you knit. Yarn bowls keep the ball from rolling across the floor, out of your kitty's playful paws, and it will twist and turn in the bowl as it gets unraveled while you knit! Cute and Dreamy and useful too!
This design has multiple holes in the shape of leaves and flowers as you can see from the detail photo to the side, so that you can work with 3 or 4 different balls of yarn. Every wheel thrown piece is a OOAK masterpiece!
