Spinning yarn on a mixer beater

No wonder there are hairs in my omelettes!














Any day now, the fancy Turkish spindle I ordered will drop in my mailbox. But I really couldn't wait any longer to start spinning, I just had to try it out on something... anything. And I'm proudly presenting my first mini-ball of 2-ply fingering wool, knitted into a practical fingertip warmer/hamster blanket.

Just so frustrating when you want to try something out and the vital thing you need just doesn't arrive. Impressive results despite circumstances!

Crazy awesome! I love this concept. There should be a collection of images of common household items used to spin yarn! :D
