Yippee for Yarn Bowls

I received some great gifts for Christmas. One of my favorites is from my daughter. She made a ceramic bowl for my yarn...


I love the blue color, the hand written "yarn" on the side, the notch for the yarn to come through, and, most of all, I love that she made it for me.


I couldn't wait to start using it and fell in love with it even more when I did. It works so great! My yarn ball stays in the bowl and spins gently as the yarn feeds out through the slot. No more chasing the ball across the sofa, the floor or the room! I love it! :-D

I've eyed one of these on Etsy, but have never purchased it. It looks great to use! How sweet. She was thinking!

Awesome!!! I want a green one with the inside purple. Is that asking too much? I have $$!

Beautiful yarn bowl, she done good!
Yarn bowls are also (almost) cat-proof, too.

Spectacular! I've always wanted a yarn bowl, but I've got to believe that having one made just for you, by a loved one, is the absolute best.
