Spinners Tools in Everyday Life.

The January gathering of the spinners choose to celebrate more than just their spinning prowess. The spinners were asked to share alternate uses for their spinning tools or household tools for spinning use.  We've all used those rake combs to detangle yarns ends, or the freezer to prevent moth infestation, but here are a few novel ideas that are simple to use and readily available.
Terry is demonstrating the use of a lazy susan to assist the    winding of your spun yarn. 


Greg has taken landscaping tape and a indelible marker to use as waterproof labeling of skeins of spun yards for dyeing.
Two different drop spindles are used to wind string for later use in bundle-tying of yarn prior to washing/dying.




And lastly we all struggle with tangled christmas lights, Colleen suggested try using a nitty-noddy to organize them.
It was a fun night of spinning, knitting, laughing and all those fun things that happen 
when spinners gather.
