Welcome back to Part 2 of the Fiber Tools Series. If you missed Part 1, you can find it here
. My videos are not so much tutorials, you can find tons of those online, but more an introduction to the tools and to show the specific one I purchased.
Did you know that the word nostepinne is Scandinavian and means "nest stick" (from Memphis Fiber Arts
). I buy that definition better than the one I found for niddy noddy
. The center pull yarn cake that you make with a nostepinne does resemble a little nest.
Here is the link
to the nostepinne I purchased.
Someday I hope to buy a really swift, and stop using my kitchen chair, and a ball winder. But until that day, the nostepinne serves it's purpose well.
Next Tuesday will be the final post in the Fiber Tools Series: A drop spindle. But come back Friday to see a finished project!
Thanks for visiting!
