I have a beautiful one of a kind yarn bowl from islandia_designs on ebay. When not holding yarn, it sits on my coffee table. I don't use it all the time, but often.

I use a pottery yarn bowl I bought on Etsy. I really do find it helpful when I need to keep the yarn ball in check, and it's a beautiful decorative piece when i'm not using it.

I like the CD caddy idea and will try it. I use a plastic container that formerly held almonds. Cut a slit in the lid and it works great.

I'm also a ceramic yarn bowl fan - mine is from The Loopy Ewe, an online shop. I also have a wonderful wooden piece that holds center pulls cakes and spins when pulled. This works beautifully and is a good looking piece. At from TLE. I'd love a wooden yarn bowl a little deeper than mine is, with both the open-ended place to feed yarn and the enclosed hole. I also like Chia's one skein piece - it's pretty and keeps the yarn clean while on the go. I used plastic bags for years and finally decided I wanted something prettier, so over the years I've added a few pieces that I also enjoy looking at.

Knitting is cheaper than therapy and more effective. I enjoy it more and it's good for my blood pressure. What more could you want?

I use my pottery yarn bowl at home but for knitting in the car I use a ziplock bag now (thanks for the idea!!). Keeps the yarn clean as it's still snowing here and the floor mats are usually wet and muddy.
