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.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

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.”

                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.

                      This is for a gift to be presented in June. It is so perfect for the recipient, I HAD to order it now. She's the retiring director of our church's pre-school and she is always crocheting something.

                      I always used to sit with my yarn in a bag next to my chair. Now, I don't have to do that with this beautiful little friend! He keeps my yarn neat and fur free, from my pets. He does a beautiful job in keeping my yarn from tangling, and from rolling around the floor. He is just heavy enough to keep the yarn from bouncing around, and if the skien is wound tightly, he can still handle it. I love having this little guy with me when I'm knitting, and I'm very happy with my purchase! I also really enjoyed reading the story about the artist, that was included with the order. This product is very well made, and is adorable besides!
