Knitting Yarn Bowl

Bowl made for people who knit to put yarn it and it keeps it from rolling around. Friend wanted one and after some discussion we did it in trade for her to make a blanket for my daughter. In my mind its better than doing something for money when another piece of creative work can be made.

I did a little carving on this around the rim to make the piece appear as if it was a piece of pottery formed by hand. The lacquer finish is heavily applied to appear as a glaze.
