When I took a class from Sarah Anderson in August, a very nice woman, Debra, sat next to me. She had the coolest set up on her wheel, thanks to her clever husband.

Come look. Can you guess what this is?

What is it?

A removable bobbin winder for her Lendrum!

On board bobbin winder

Here it is in action. It is so simple and brilliant!

So brilliant!

It was turned on a lathe from a dowel. I really want one, for all of my wheels. Have any of you brilliant spinners seen something like this for sale anywhere? Or maybe I can figure it out with PVC, hmmmm. Have I mentioned I love gadgets?

    An adorable set!

  18. KatsoKnits says:

    These are absolutely lovely, so pretty and feminine. I really need a set of interchangeable needles. I never seem to have the right size with me when I’m planning to cast on a new project when I’m on the road. I know, better planning could probably alleviate that problem, but since we know that won’t happen, an interchangeable needle set seems like a much better option for me.

  19. Galaneia says:

    That’s such a neat kit!

  20. Chris says:

    I like Denise products.

  21. Connie says:
