Nostepinne & Knitting

I broke my wool winder the other week (it was old and worn out) and a new one is fairly pricey so I opted for old school technology. Nostepinnes (aka sticks!) are used to wind wool. I had a go at it today and it worked ok.. I *think* with the right technique they wind 'flat edge' balls but still this is knittable :) The yarn is Ixchel Bunny Angorino (ie angora & merino blend) which I spun myself. I am making a hat with it (for the wool show if time permits!)

And here we have progress on the Rosella wool I dyed, am making a scarf (obviously!). :)
