Here are pics of my sad little spindel.
Made from a 1/4" dowel and 2 1/2" wooden toy wheel. I should have pre-drilled the hole for the hook. I could not find any drill bit small enough amoung my husband's tools. So I cracked my first atemp with a bottom whorl.
So the answer was to have a top whorl, which I cracked also. Then I wrapped the cracked area with thread. By now my sad little thing really did not work very well. But I have not given up!
Good thoughts are as important as good actions.
