Handmade with love – Bags and bowls

This Christmas, delight the knitters in your life with thoughtful gifts that enhance their creative journey! We’ve curated the perfect pairing for your Works in Progress (WIPs) – locally crafted project bags and yarn bowls, all from talented makers in BC and Alberta.

Atelier Nekozuki

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?!).

Melly Knits Yarn Bowls
The epitome of artisanal craftsmanship and local charm! Hand-thrown and hand-glazed by Mazahouse Pottery, a local gem nestled in Abbotsford, BC, these yarn bowls are a testament to the beauty of handmade creations. Designed with knitters in mind, these yarn bowls are weighted to provide strength and support, ensuring stability while you work on your projects.

Measuring approximately 6″ wide at the top and 3.5″ tall, each bowl is unique, varying slightly in size and color drips, adding a touch of individuality to your knitting experience. The “wide” bowls boast a slightly broader base, enhancing their stability and making them ideal companions for your yarn adventures.

Lavender Lampworks Yarn Bowl
These 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. Made in the Comox Valley by Judy Gadicke (who is both a lampwork artist and a potter).

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.
