niddy-noddy

“How to niddy-noddy,” says Iris, taking apart the device and putting it together.

“How to niddy-noddy,” and I don’t know whether it is a question or a statement.

My previous dye technique involved putting yarn in a pot, dying it,

then spending an extraordinary amount of time untying tangles.

So I* made a niddy-noddy for looping nice hanks.

Nice hanks!

 

 
 

 

*NOTE: Martin made the niddy-noddy. I told him where to cut the PVC & after he cut it he accidentally put it together. It took all of three seconds. But I took it apart & put it together, so I made it, too. Then I suppose because Iris took it apart & put it together, she made it, too.

    Between the niddy-noddy and the yarn winder you need a swift.

      At first I thought the swift was to swoop down quickly and snatch the yarn from the niddy-noddy to build it to nests before I could get it to the winder, but then I looked up the term, and now it seems like a mighty useful tool indeed. Do you own one?
