My sister is heavily into Knitting, she asked me to make this thing for her this morning. It’s called a Niddy Noddy. It is supposed to hold the yarn she hand spins so you can easily wrap it into balls of yarn. This one is made to hold 2 yds. It is also made to pull apart easily for travelling purposes.
I made it with blind mortise and tenons using some Purpleheart and figured Mohogany scraps I had laying around. I hear Knitters will pay a tidy sum for these easy to make little ditty’s. I would have preferred to Just satin wax it clear but she wanted a darker color. I may find myself making a few dozen of these for the gals in her knitting circle. Can you say new mini lathe???? I could make some really authentic old looking ones if I had one of those. She wants me to make her a custom spinning wheel next. Hmmmmmm$$$$$$$$
