Yarn Bowl Freak Show

Well, the kilns are back in operation at LibertyTown. The bizarreness of these bowls was not caused by the misfire, rather it came from somewhere in my head.   I've made this odd type of bowl before and have had a request from a friend to revive the design!

They all have two faces.  With assorted choices for your yarn to feed through, noses.....


or the more traditional hook, or ear, whichever you prefer.

For those of you who are not knitters or crocheters, the hook allows you to easily remove your project before you finish.

The holes require you to cut your yarn to move on to something else.

This one is the only bowl that shows issues with the refire.  These are all LibertyTown glazes and I am not familiar with their best application.  The glaze blistered....and while that is not a preferred result, it does add a warty appearance to this bizarre "blue man" don't you think?

I am debating loading up a few of these into my Etsy Shop....if you see one you are interested in let me know and I will do just that!
