~ it's a yarn bowl now ~

My friend from work gave this flower pot to me for my birthday a few years back.  In it was a pretty plant that was potted in one of those plastic pots they usually come in.

Well anyway - I've been wanting to get myself one of those yarn bowls for the longest time, but I just couldn't justify the expense.  And it's a good thing I didn't.  This flower pot works perfectly as a yarn bowl.  

The flower pot is 4 1/2" tall and the ball of yarn in it weighs 3 oz.  :)
