Homemade spindles!

002Here are my homemade spindles for hand spinning. I made them because I couldn’t find any that were similar to this design. I like that I can evenly fill the space between the disk so I have approximately the same amount of yarn on each spindle. I ply in 3’s and its nice when   the amount of single ply is close. Filling all six spindles results in 2, large, 3 ply balls of yarn.
Transferring the yarn to my wheel for plying is easy. I prefer to hand spin because my spinning can go everywhere I go. I can even spin while riding in the car!
