Have I mentioned how much I love my new spindle?! Really is such a joy to spin with, and occurred to me I forgot in my excitement to mention where I got it from!
So, Spindler’s Cottage on Etsy is who I have to thank for a spindle which produced twice the yarn in half the time, and frankly I could’ve kept spinning a fair while longer without running out of cop capacity, but I was just too eager to see how much I’d produced!
Keep meaning to post pictures of my super-low budget niddy noddy, too! This one is a foot long, making for easy approximate yarn length measuring. So quick and easy to make. Just hit up a DIY shop for plastic pipes (I used 1” diameter), plus two T-connectors and four end caps of corresponding diameter. Saw the pipe to the lengths you want (allow for additional length added by T-connectors) and assembly is fairly self evident.
Mine’s a quick and dirty one, but a bit of nail varnish remover should get rid of the inked words and residual sticky labels if they bother you.
