Headed out to the farm this weekend geared up with my Aura spinning wheel, bobbins of singles for plying, a niddy noddy, some knitting, and a crate of fiber. The plan was to ply all the bobbins that were full to clear them out for new spinning. Unfortunately, I left my lazy kate behind! Lucky for me I have my very own Boy Genius who cut some dowel rods down that were perfect to holding my bobbins across my crate and viola, instant stand in lazy kate.
She is far from pretty but is very functional and it was easy to ply from. I may use this method when I am hauling my wheel around to fiber fests. One less thing to carry around and to remember to pack!
