Eeeps! I’m falling behind in my blogging list for the #yearofhandmade link up! Onwards, and hopefully I’ll catch up during April… 🙂
#5: What is the favourite thing you have ever made?
That is a tough question. I craft. A lot. Hmmm.
Right now I’m in the throws of dyeing yarn, so… I’d have to say this nifty large tool:
The PVC Skein Winder
Now this is not a picture of mine, but I made it exactly to the plans, so it is virtually identical.
It has a diameter of almost exactly 2 yards. I can use it upright or lay it flat on the floor, depending which is the easiest choice for my poor shoulder. It spins like a dream! (The skein winder, not the shoulder, LOL!)
Here is another one I might make…
I can see this as being very handy for rewinding a dyed skein.
If I choose to dive deeper into the natural dyeing world, I think I’m going to build a foot pedal powered skein winder with an electronic counter. Something like in the video below…
And I think I’m going to build one of these! ‘Cos it looks really handy and fun!
So how about you?
