New Yarn Bowls and Project Bags
We’ve got the perfect pairing for your WIPs (works in progress)! There’s a new batch of project bags and yarn bowls in the store and they’re all from BC or Alberta makers. Here’s a small peek at the selection we’ve got in store and online.
Atelier Nekozuki Project Bags
Hand-crafted in Cochrane, Alberta, Atelier Nekozuki box shaped project bags are all made from 100% cotton Japanese fabrics. Each bag holds about 400g of worsted weight yarn and your project and we just love the prints that Katie chooses for her bags (what’s not to like about a pup wearing glasses?!).
Two Sticks and Ewe project bags
Handmade by Brenda Blocha in West Kelowna, these Two Sticks and Ewe project bags are made from 100% cotton (inside and out) with a removable swivel handle. A little bit smaller than the box bags, these bags are big enough to use for a few pairs of socks you’re knitting, a smaller shawl project or a few hats. They are the perfect size for popping into your bag and bringing with you for on-the-go knitting!
Lavender Lampworks yarn bowls.
Our yarn bowls from Lavender Lampworks might be as gorgeous as what’s on your needles and are the ideal way to keep your ball of yarn in check. The Lavender Lampworks yarn bowls are made in the Comox Valley by Judy Gadicke (who is both a lampwork artist and a potter) and come in beautiful greys, blues and brown/green.
Each yarn bowl fits a wound 100g ball of yarn easily with room for a few smaller balls too. You can use the holes on the sides of the bowl to store your needles or to help keep your different colours in order as you knit a colourwork project. No matter how you use your yarn bowl, they are sure to make your favourite knitting spot extra lovely.
Whether a bag or a yarn bowl, any of them would make a great gift for you or a fibre loving friend. Happy browsing!
