I’m a knitter and am curious, what will these spools be used for? Most knitters will not wind their yarn onto spools before using it. Is she going to tension a skein across two of them, like on a squirrel cage swift? If so, you could make some hollow spools using two round flat pieces and around six dowels for each one. you can see a photo of a squirrel cage swift here (there are many varieties) and they also sell spare spools for $20, though they are 5” not 10”.

If this project is a surprise for your wife rather than a requested project, and you need a knitter to bounce ideas/plans off of, please feel free to ask me.
