yarn bowl common goods

Doesn’t every single knitter already have a “yarn bowl”? So there is no need to make more, right?

All will be kept safely in this jar.

I’m not sold on the “pop-up” term, but the Pottery Barn store in Bethesda (4750 Bethesda Avenue) kindly allows space for some local potters this weekend. Saturday 10 to 8, Sunday 10 to 6.

My plate from 2017 on the left. Peter Voulkos’ from 1956 on the right. Go figure.

The Voulkos show is at the Renwick through August.

Minnesota plate 2017

This plate suggests the Land of 10,000 Lakes, the first state I entered at the moment of birth. It’s about nine inches across.

Seventy-five dollars.
