I actually use something similar for my yarn - many skeins of which are Vanna's Choice. Kinda wish I was joking right now.
My girlfriend took to using a whole shelf on the living room IKEA bookcase, she has far too much. People sort of walk in and do that slow down and stare at it.
"That's... a lot of yarn. Do you use it all?"
"Nope, but it does give the wonderful appearance of snugly unicorn vomit on a shelf."
Oh, the bowl is just for when I'm actually crocheting, to keep the yarn I'm working with from rolling away when I tug at it. I'm too lazy to re-wind it into a ball that pulls from the center, and those still roll away sometimes anyhow.
My actual yarn stash is big enough that I'm also thinking of getting an Ikea shelf for it. The problem is that the little transparent boxes that go with the shelves are actually kind of purple, which would ruin the unicorn vomit look that I'm also going for.
Your girlfriend and I seem to have a lot in common, Crimson. Do you know if she's seeing anybody?
Well it is an open relationship.
At any rate, we don't have them in boxes, in fact she slimmed down the collection recently, so now they are just stuck in there like scrolls in a cubby-hole system if that makes sense.
I keep most of my stash in one of those big rubbermaid under-the-bed bins. I don't do colorwork, really, so I don't need more than one skein out at a time.
I just read my comment and I'm bored with myself.

I just keep my yarn in a fruit bowl.

This isn't a very good advertisement for the yarn, but man is it unsettling somehow.

2/3 of this video was dedicated to meeting Stella, her cat. I don't care about Stella, tell us more about the god damn yarn!

Knitting is pretty popular these days, this wasn't terribly unsettling to me.
I know she is selling something, but I think there was at least a glimmer of genuine enthusiasm for a hobby (might just be the quaintness of the video). Don't often see that from a celebrity (they are either overly measured to act cool or extremely excited to make you buy something).

How can someone so gleefully talk about something so God damn boring? Is there any level of introspection on her part where she's internally worrying that pointless garbage is flowing out of her, or are there people that will just freely talk about crap like a fucking ashtray for yarn?
Hooker: Now you know how people who don't play Minecraft feel when listening to someone talk about Minecraft.

Daddy likes it with the gloves on.

I was a journeyman picture framer for several years, moving around whenever I needed to. Getting into a good shop was hard, so I'd take whatever worked, and usually that meant Michael's or Joann's.
I am the proud winner of the Vanna White Yarn Sales Sweepstakes. I got a coffee cup, a gift certificate for 0 at Michael's and the option to have my name printed in a magazine. I opted out of that one. OH and I got an iPod the next year.
Proud, but not proud enough to want your name printed in a yarn magazine? That's probably the right amount of proud.

A bowl for the yarn, a box for the wine.

That cat has seen the kinds of things it would warn us about, if it could.
After six years, that cat knows to NOT TOUCH THE GOD DAMN YARN BOWL!!!

That yarn is the SHITTIEST yarn, but cat so five stars.
Yeah, it's not great. But when you're on a budget and all you want is a quick baby hat that you KNOW the parents will never put on the kid anyway...
