now i don’t have to treadle like mad to achieve enough twist to create a smaller girth yarn!
i also ordered a pom pom making kit for corinne and i from the woolery. what a nice find! i like putting them on top of hats or decorating gifts with them and corinne struggled with making one recently with a cardboard template and it just didn’t cut it.
