    anyone know how to make a nostepinne?

    I know I've seen instructions online for how to make a nostepinne out of stock items from the local lumberyard, but now that I think I'll die without them I can't find them. Any ideas?

    you can use a toilet paper tube as a nostepinne. you just need some type of cylinder that's longer than it is wide. nice wooden ones have a handle to hold, though, and the part you wind the yarn on is a little tapered.

    i didn't know either, so i looked it up!


    "Nostepinne are used to wind center-pull balls which allow access to both ends of the ball of yarn at the same time. Spinners use center- pull balls when plying two single ply yarns together. Knitters use a nostepinne to wind balls of yarn - you can knit from both ends of the ball at the same time."

    You can make a nostepinde from a fat marker or cut off the top 9" of a broom handle (if it's nice and smooth) in a pinch you can also wrap a center pull ball around your thumb (use a piece of paper to make a sheath so that it slides off neatly)
