This yarn bowl is perfect for the knitter and crocheter who wants to keep the yarn from tumbling and rolling around the studio. I have also used one like this to warp my rigid heddle loom, no more chasing the yarn ball across the floor. My dad made this for my online store. He is supposed to be making more for me but he shows them off at the markets where he sells turned bowls, and sells them. My brilliant ideas, he does the work. He also makes the wood footstools (my idea) and wood magnets (my idea) listed in the store.
