Tired of your ball of yarn rolling around, going under the couch, collecting dust bunnies? Does your kitty think it's a toy? Here's a classy solution for you knitters who know what I'm talking about! So here we have my version of a yarn bowl. It's got a cover to REALLY keep your yarn safely corralled. As I was making it I thought this would make a great steamer too. Simply put in your microwave with frozen or fresh veggies, a little water, zap it, then grab some oven mitts, dump the water out, voila! steamed veggies ready to serve. Or, for those of you with wood stoves, it would make a pretty cool steamer or giant potpourri pot. I would suggest buffering the pot with a little grate, like a gas stovetop burner, if it's used as a room humidifier on top of the stove. Even though the pot has been fired to 2300℉ if it gets hot too fast that could give it a "thermal shock" and crack it. This one sports a zoomed-in image of one of my early spring ferns unfurling from it's "fiddlehead" shape. Some folks eat them at this stage but I chose to take a picture and make pottery from it instead :)

It measures approximately 6" tall and 7.5" across from handle to handle. I had a full skein of yarn in it and it fit, no problem. When you're done knitting for the day poke your needles in the holes provided. I made a variety of hole sizes for different size needles. What a perfect gift for one of your knitting pals! I want one!
