Yarn Bowl...

Today, I received through the post a little gift to me from my mum and gran (who both gave me spending money for my recent birthday). It's a beautiful handmade Yarn Bowl from The Little Wren Pottery. It came very carefully packaged and with a note from the crafter thanking me for buying handmade (when it's this beautiful it's a no-brainer!).
I ordered this about 10 days ago, chose a light matt finish to the bowl so that my yarn doesn't move too quickly through the slot and I can easily see how much I have left - I hope that it will really help me when it comes to plying my handspun yarn. With something so nice it didn't surprise me at all when I picked up simply knitting, to see it was one of their yarn bowl picks on pg 75 too!
