knitting bowl

I was gifted this gorgeous knitting bowl from by the talented woodworker Chris MacBain and couldn’t be happier with it!

Have you seen these before? The concept is fairly new to me, but makes a lot of sense. If you have ever knit out of a tupperware container with at hole poked in the lid so that your yarn didn’t tangle up, then you understand the genius of the knitting bowl. Your yarn lives happily in the bowl and feeds through the slot to avoid nasty tangling. I’m working with two balls of yarn for this lap blanket and it has frankly been a nightmare of tangles up to this point, so I’m so happy to have a great solution.

You can knit with it beside you, or sitting in your lap, or even nestled between you legs. A much more elegant solution than a beat up tupperware!

I’m leaving it out as a decor piece and I think I will be inspired to just pick up my knitting and knit a few minutes here and there during the day, since it’s so accessible.
