White pear
1.2oz/35g
9.75”
Nostepinne with WPI gauge

The length of White Pear was a bit of a bear, due to the checking covering one side of the blank.

After removing the checking there was a bit of an odd shape left over. but after a little thought a nostepinne was the perfect solution. The WPI (wraps per inch) gauge was where the worst of the checking.

Oops…

You use the shaft to wrap finished yard to get a center pull ball of yarn. The inch gap in the handle you wrap your yarn to figure out how many wraps equal an inch.

Hi Michelle: I have no clue what this is, but it is well turned and finished. Something to do with fiber arts?

Added a description for those who don’t know the use of a nostepinne. I forgot, I have been involved in the fiber arts for such a long time that I forget it isn’t common knowledge.
