More and more often, you may be seeing bowls with swirls and holes carved into them, whether this be online or at a local yarn shop. After figuring out that there's no way something with a hole in the side of it could be an ice cream bowl, and yes, indeed this is something that's used for yarn, you're probably wondering why someone would need a bowl for their yarn.
Yarn bowls help keep yarn clean, organized, and most importantly untangled as you work your way through a project. The yarn is threaded through the swirl on the side, and as the yarn is pulled, the ball will stay in the bowl. You can also store your WIP's in the bowl, and keep it out on the table as a nice decorative piece.
