The glaze on this bowl is beautiful and it’s very smooth on the inside. When I first saw the bowl I thought it was an exquisite Asian designed floral vase and looked forward to picking up flowers from which to create a beautiful bouquet.
I called my friend to thank her for the wonderful vase, but before I got all words of appreciation out she exclaimed, “Is it controlling your balls?” Hmmm
That’s when, to my relief that I had not mentioned “flowers”, she went on to say, “I know you are doing a lot of knitting and wondered if you ever had trouble controlling run away balls of yarn, so I searched for a yarn bowl and found one for you! Remember, I asked you what you use to control the balls and you said a basket?”
A yarn bowl–I’d never heard of a yarn bowl, but immediately decided to set it to good use and found it works perfectly, whether while knitting or crocheting.
This is my new favorite Crochet Cloche Pattern. Of course I offered to make my friend a thank you gift, and suggested a hat to show my appreciation of her thoughtfulness, but she lives in California and decided a hat would be too hot to wear.
Instead, in appreciation for such a lovely and functional surprise, I crocheted a rose pin to attach to a purse, coat, scarf or blouse as my gift that says I love you. All hand made and it won’t add any extra heat!
