The glass bowel was a gift from my Aunt Leona who was de-cluttering a few things. This a Murano hand blown glass that was made for her in the late 60s on a visit to the Murano Island in Italy. It is the perfect size to hold 4 balls of Tess Design yarns from Portland Maine that were gifts from my sister Murratte. The yarn is very fine and at the moment this is just a sample of what I have in mind . Since the picture I have already gone from 2,5 needles to 3.5 which gives a better drape to the fabric.
