CD Drop Spindle

Pattern: CD spindles
Mods: I used two mini cds instead of regular CDs and cut the dowl 9 inches. My first cup hook broke off in the end of the dowel so I had to sand it down until it was gone, so it ended up a little shorter. My sawing is really bad, too so I ended up rounding the splintered off ends.

It wobbles some, but as I'm pretty much of a stop and spin sort of gal, it actually worked out for me. I practiced on the never ending ball of green roving and some silky blue mixture gifted to my by Opal.

I tried the nostepinne to make a ball, but I can see this will take practice.
