Great pieces of functional art

A yarn bowl. Artistic yet completely functional. I love my yarn bowl! It has a wonderful opening to let yarn feed fron the bowl to the needles, a great shape for all balls of yarn and rubber grippers on the bottom to keep it from slipping. I have even set it on the dashboard when riding and knitting (not driving!). It’s kept me company with my Cascadia Mitts
It’s kept me company with knitting up some cotton washcloths….
and a cup of coffee….
and currently a pattern from Ravelry my cousin and I are knitting together, the Shroom Slouch

you can find one for yourself at Neal Pottery
Luna has created her own piece of functional art. A snow cave. It faces the sun, has protection from the wind, is cool on the underbelly and beautiful to boot!
