YARN BALL HOLDER

This bowl helps to stop the yarn ball from running away while the ladies keep pulling the yarn for knitting or crochet work. The opened long slot allows them to change the knitting project anytime they want, while they can use the small hole for one color knitting project. I got the idea from a ceramic yarn bowl and I turned this one from red gum. photo #4 was one of my wife knitting work

Great idea Sam! I’ve seen yarn balls running all over the house when my wife was crocheting intricate patterns with 20 or 30 different balls comprising a row in an afghan!
