The Best things in life are Simple !!.....

Crochet Hats....natural colours !
The Nostepinne !.....does a great job


Proof is in the pudding.... it really works !

I have been doing a little spinning and making a few items lately, now I was wanting something to turn my hanks of wool into balls, after a bit of research I decided to give this 'Nostepinne' a go....its so simple and brilliant !

I found it on good old Ebay !....it wasn't expensive and it does a really nice job at turning my wool hanks into nice balls of wool.

I have been busy making some more crochet hats using some of my fleece from last year. I thought I'd share some photos with you of the finished items and the 'Nostepinne'.

I am currently working on a special project for myself..... I shall share it all with you a little later when it starts to take shape !...... It might be a little while as I have to hand spin the wool myself and then knit it, not the quickest way to do things but I like the individuality that this creates.....

I like your Nostepinne, I keep looking at wool winders but they are a bit expensive for how often I would use it - might have to check out ebay for one of your 'thingys'
