Glitter wand as Nostepinne

Glitter wand as Nostepinne

Members of the Horde gave me this magic wand for my birthday, once. It's a typical, lovely glitter wand with liquid in it and sloshy bits that sparkle and flow and float. It's cool.

When I found out about nostepinnes, I wondered if they would work for me. Since I already have a ballwinder, it seemed silly, to me at least, to spend money on the hand-version of the same thing. I wandered around the house trying to find something with the right heft, length, and thickness and happened upon this.

It works. The ball is nearly intimidatingly neat. I'm still amazed I can do that by hand without much fuss, and it came off the wand easily.d I'm now knitting off both ends for a pair of Two-At-A-Time socks.

Now I know what to pack for the trip along with my drop spindle and a few ounces of Superwash hand-dyed wool... Hee.
