Cuddly Crafting

Let this charming sheep look over your coziest crafting. The hand-carved figure stands perched as you feed your yarn through the hooked opening on the side, while two holes hold your needles in between cast-offs and purls. As you knit or crochet, the ball unravels inside the bowl, nixing any knots or tangles. Tasha McKelvey hand glazes each bowl before firing, creating a unique piece that is as useful as it is decorative. Handmade in Virginia.

Tasha McKelvey

Tasha McKelvey's clay work is intended to be useful—this is art that is meant to be touched. In the past everything we used in the home was made by hand. Today our homes are filled with mass-produced stuff. When we seek out handmade art we make our surroundings a little more human.

Studying art and ceramics at university, Tasha also gained practical experience from working alongside professional potters and now has 20 years of experience working with clay.

Tasha throws on the potter's wheel or uses slabs of clay to hand-build her clay forms. Each piece is glazed by hand and fired in an electric kiln. Over the past few years Tasha's been making pottery and ceramic jewelry inspired by the gardens, forests and the wooden toys of her childhood. She's incorporated lots of birds, plants and woodland creatures into her designs. collection

Very nice gift for the knitter in the family. However, it was a bit of a puzzle as to what it was. A little card depicting use would be helpful.

    Comments about SHEEP YARN BOWL:

    This adorable yarn bowl was purchased as a Christmas gift. Consequently, it has not been given yet, but I'm confidant the recipient is going to love it. I was a little hesitant about the sheep being in a precarious position and subject to breakage; however, it appears to be very well made with the sheep having a lower profile than the online pictures indicate. I also like the soft yellow color of the bowl allowing it to be used as part of the decor when not being used functionally.

        This was a gift purchased for an amazing Knitter of wonderful dog toys - "nitties". She is a great person and gifts everyone she meets with a wonderful knitted dog toy. She has trouble with arthritis and this bowl is a great boon to her passion!

              My friend is a knitter and has made me several things including a scarf and hat set and a sweater. She's hard to buy for and this will be a perfect gift for her.
