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?
A removable bobbin winder for her Lendrum!
Here it is in action. It is so simple and 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?
This clever little kit is a pretty perfect – throw it in your purse in case of a knitting emergency – knitting needle set. Mine has been put to use many times when I’ve had a yarn buying emergency. Here’s what it has in it:
The case is hand-sewn from designer cottons and contains:
- 6 pairs of knitting needles, US#5-#10 (3.75 â€“ 6mm)
- 1 G6 (4mm) crochet hook
- 3 cords, 14, 16 and 19″ (36, 41 and 48cm)
- 2 end buttons and 1 extender
- Needles, hook and cords are all colored to coordinate with the rosy case.
Retail price, $49.95
