If you love knitting but get fed up with your ball of wool rolling all over the floor, or the cat chasing it, or having to put it in an unattractive carrier bag - the answer is a yarn bowl. These beautiful objects make wonderful presents for the knitaholic in your family or a reward for yourself for all those sweaters you've turned out over the years!
I'm old enough to remember yarn holders made of plastic, and they are still around in varying styles. This simple concept is a must-have for knitters on-the-go!
If you really love the vintage feel of knitting as it used to be, there are still plenty of quirky, vintage wool holders to choose from.
In these days of austerity, knitting is once again all the rage - it's a beautiful craft with some lovely, practical accessories that will make your knitting experience even more meaningful.
