Yeah...Yarn Bowls!

While writing up the Knitter's Anniversary guide I was tempted to find a yarn bowl.  Then I remembered that one of the teacher's at my school does pottery in her home studio.  I sent a few pics to her and the next day she said she'd thrown one!  After mentioning this at the Elegant Spider, a few spiders were so excited that they wanted to put in an order.
At $15 a bowl, they are an amazing handmade steal!
 The blue one on the right is deliberately made with the spiral to the left, as one of the spiders wanted one with a "j".
The spiral sometimes bow out, but I think that lends to the handmade charm...something you would never find in a mass-produced piece of crap!
