new spindle

this is my new spindle, created after the demise of my first spindle, which sadly couldn't handle being dropped repeatedly, though was later fixed. It works surprisingly well for a contraption made up of a few rubber bands, a couple of cds and a piece of dowling rod.
Also a couple of pics of the plying tool and finished yarn.

new tool

I have a new tool to add to my collection of spinning equipment: an 'andean plying tool' which was kindly crafted for me. With this tool I can ply yarn without any wastage.
