Nostepinning....

....with a pestle. (That part is called the pestle, right?)

I know, big deal. It's not knitting, it's just winding thread. Well it is kind of fun if you're not pressed for time. And it makes a nifty center-pull ball out of leftovers, which helps encourage me to use the leftovers.

But I wouldn't recommend using the pestle that, until now, was always used for grinding pepper. You know, like I did.

I've had good luck with the handle end of a screwdriver for winding balls of yarn. I'm kind of hooked on center-pull balls now, especially using small ones for color work.

I just tried it with a mini maglite, and that worked really really well.
But winding 100 grams of yarn still really sucks.
