This classy little yarn bowl will be a great addition to any knitters arsenal of tools. It is decorated in a floating blue glaze with a shiny smooth surface to encourage ease of movement by the ball of wool within. The keyhole is placed low in the bowl to promote proper tension of the wool while knitting. The bowl is about 7" in diameter, making it able to hold a larger ball of wool. The wide base helps stabilize the bowl against tipping. There are holes strategically place in the bowl to allow for the storage of knitting needles when the bowl is not in use.
