Yarn bowls... This was expected

With my recent knitting adventures, it was inevitable that yarn bowls would make an appearance. Many of my collectors who found out I was knitting, asked me, "When are you going make yarn bowls?"
I had seen several traditional yarn bowls, thrown on the wheel and swirl cut of it. They looked nice, but you know with me with it doesn't start with a yarn bowl concept, it has to start with a fabric concept. I considered the style of my casseroles, which look like pieces of fabric wrapped around and attached with buttons.
This is the design I came up with and it takes care of some issues I was having with knitting.

I wanted more functionality out of it. I was recently working on a knitted project in which I had to use the yarn held double. It can work fine with a yarn cake using one end from the outside and inside, but can land up being a tangle. In my new yarn bowls you can lay the cake horizontal and pull the yarn from the swirls at opposite ends.

These are also good for color work and can fit two yarn bowls.

If you like doing socks two at a time also known as TAAT socks, this is perfect as it will hold both the skeins in it.

They are big enough to hold one 100gm skein of fingering - worsted weight yarn.

I have listed several of them in my etsy shop. Do check them out
