Some of the cute ceramic bowls out there that have the notches for yarn, are 35.00! So today I had the idea of using what I have and it works great.
If you have (or can get) a stainless steel bowl with the little "hanger" on it, it's the perfect cheap solution to the dilemma.
If your yarn is light, you might want to lay a stack of old CDs, some glass gems, or smooth dollar store rocks in the bottom. Loop the yarn through the hanger and you are set!
