It's Even Better When It's On Sale

Friday evening I went out for gallery night with a friend, and we had a great time. It turns out that there are dozens of artists' studios on Madison's near East side, so we spent ours wandering around. Some retired professors craft exquisite etchings using a press that is more than 100 years old! One studio produces striking glassware.

And then there was this:
This adorable yarn bowl was waiting for me on the seconds table at Nstar Studio. You can see that it's a bit out of kilter, but I think it will work just fine. For $15, I could not walk away without it.


  1. Pretty! It might work even better than the regular ones. The yarn has plenty of area to pull through.

    Enjoy ---- yarn bowls make knitting just a bit more fun.

  2. You would have never forgiven yourself if you let that one go.

  3. TIS wonderful. You will love yours. I was gifted two and love them both. one was hand thrown by a friend's husband!

  4. What a great find - I've seen some on etsy for upwards of $70!

  5. Aren't they great! It's one of those things you don't realize you need in your life until you but it, and they you want MORE!
