Cheap and Cheerful Spinning Tools
So yes, I’m totally hooked on “How Clean is Your House?” They have the toned down, Swiffer pushing version over here on Lifetime and then they have the real gritty version on BBC America, which I swear I’ve watched every episode twice. One of the things that Kim is fond of saying is “cheap and cheerful,” which totally describes the next thing I show you. Let me just say this is not my original idea, but I learned it at the classes I took with Betty Burian Kirk, who came with an entire garbage bag full.
Need a Nostepinne or spare bobbin in a pinch. Here you go. It just sticky enough to ply from both ends and yet slick enough to let you do it properly.
If you’re planning on plying with another bobbin full go ahead an put it on your lazy kate.
Now here’s the one tip I find helpful especially with the spindle. The wheel moves a little faster and I don’t have this problem with it. Make sure to keep the bulk of your singles on the tp holder and only let a little off at a time. If it all comes off in a chunk it will be a pain to sort out.
Well that’s about it. Simple, eh? Like I said cheap and cheerful. Now start saving up your tp holders and let me know how it goes.
