Fine Wooden Accessories  mostly 'by Jim'
   orifice hooks     Beka Swift       Folding Stools      Spindles

Nøstepinnes  (pronounced  nost a pin a) (from the Scandinavian Nøstepinde)


L->R: Canarywood (no longer available), Walnut, Walnut, Cherry, Walnut, Maple, Mahogany

These tools are especially useful when you only have one spindle and it is full or you have just purchased a skein of yarn that needs winding.

The Summer issue of Interweave Knits has a feature extolling the Nostepinne's virtues.

A very old tool that is so useful.  Many of us now have crank ball winders but they are rather cumbersome to bring along on retreats or in a suitcase when traveling.  

When I was getting ready to go to CA, Jim made me a smaller version that fit easily into my spindle bag.  The smaller ones work just as well as the larger models.

Small  ($24) available in Cherry, Maple, Sapelle Mahogany and Walnut

Large ($26) available in Maple, Sapelle Mahogany and Walnut



Here's a YouTube video that shows how to do the winding on so you get a nice egg or rounded center pull ball.

And here is a downloadable pdf.

And from Hatchtown Farm, another good explanation.
