Elizabeth's Brilliant Nostepinne

Photos by Elizabeth Young

Meet Elizabeth Young, she joined the guild last Saturday!  She had a really impressive tool with her that she had made.

 It is a nostepinne now, but it started life as a travel case for Elizabeth's toothbrush. Here's how it works.

 Open the case and put the end of your yarn inside.

Close the case, catching the end of the yarn securely.

 Wind the yarn diagonally while turning the nostepinne just a little each time.

Open the case and hold on to that yarn-end while you remove the ball from the nostepinne.
VoilĂ !  A center pull ball!
