Catching Plies

The phone rings. The UPS guy knocks on your door. The cat attacks your drive wheel. Quick! Loop the end of your ply around one of the hooks and HOPE it holds...

Here's a great Twist Saving fix, shared by Vanessa (a.k.a. BeingV on Ravelry) who gave me permission to post her photo here. Vanessa has stuck a Velcro dot to the end of her flyer to catch wayward plies. Brilliant! JoAnn Fabrics, here I come!


  1. Hey Kris! Thanks for sharing my pic of the velcro dot. It really is a very economical and easy way to keep that twist in check. JoAnn's is great - but check your local dollar store as well for a sleeve of these little velcro gems.

    Treadle on! -V

  2. Very clever of Vanessa! I must remember that if I ever get myself a spindle.

  3. What a fantastic idea! Thanks to you & BeingV! (BeingV was kind enough to send me some wonderful fiber to help me start spinning!)
