From plush wool yarn to this charming sheep bowl, your crafty creations come full circle in this knitting accessory. Handmade by Becky Ziemer, this charming yarn bowl comes to life with the cartoon-inspired features of a rotund sheep. Each bowl features a lustrous glaze on the inside, lending artful juxtaposition to the speckled, swirled outside. Keep skeins and rolls of yarn in the little sheep's belly, feed the strand through the tail, then enjoy a cozy craft night without any tangles between your knits and purls. Handmade in Memphis, Tennessee.

We put Sherman to the test! Will he stand up to a knitting first-timer? Find out on our blog.

As a potter, Becky Ziemer has found inspiration in quirky places. “Over the years, I have been most inspired by Jim Henson's Muppets and the wacky, corny sense of humor that permeated every one of his productions,” the Memphis-based artist says. She brings her visions to life using clay, takes in their “personalities,” then decides exactly where to add the finishing touch that brings them to life: the dots of their eyes. And though she’s always loved creating adorable creatures, she feels humbled by her animals’ magnetism. “I've had more than one fan tell me the highlight of their day is looking to see what new critter I made,” she says. “That just blows me away.”

      Comments about UncommonGoods Sherman the Sheep Yarn Bowl:

      This bowl is perfect. I was searching for a sheep yarn bowl for my hubby to get me for Christmas. After purchasing another American made one that wasn't up to snuff (sent back because of the quality), I stumbled upon this surfing the net. It is very well made, is a great size and has the same dopey expression as the pet sheep I used to have. Can't wait till Christmas day when I can actually use it on one of the projects I'm working on now.

                      My wife is an avid knitter and this helps her control the ball of yarn as she knits. The best thing about this besides its functionality is it is as unique as she is. We love having Sherman the Sheep as a part of our family.
