Meet Tavin, my new yarn bowl. He was a birthday gift from my son and daughter-in-law. Actually mostly from my DIL who is a fellow knitter. My son thought the bowl was too ugly and I would hate it. But he didn’t take into account my odd sense of humor.

Tavin comes from artist Lucky Stradley, through her Etsy shop SomethingLucky13. I can feed yarn through a J hole in the back, or through a hole in his nose! He keeps me company while I knit and sometimes I put him to work keeping my yarn under control.
