What a lovely yarn bowl. Someone really pays attention to what you would like, or it's a very good gift to yourself. They are a very useful item for a knitter. I just use a big salad bowl, but I like yours way better.
What a gorgeous and thoughtful gift! I use a fabric yarn owl and/or a drawstring bag, depending on whether it's a center or outside pull ball, but a yarn bowl works no matter what. Congratulations on your beautiful new gift
