Drop Spindle

Here is a homemade drop spindle for handspinning. It is nice and light so a thinner yarn can be spun.
This couldn't have been easier to make! Take a wooden toy wheel, cut a foot long piece of dowel to fit in the hole of the wheel, push the wheel onto the dowel leaving about two inches from the top, screw a small cup hook into the top, and it is ready to go! (Will round off the long end with sand paper but was too excited to wait to try it out.)
"She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff." Prov. 31:19.
