Tools of the trade

For some time I have been making various tools for other crafters, things like spindles, crochet hooks needles and a few other bits and pieces that I am asked for. I was recently introduced to someone who both spins and colects spindles however and my eyes were opened firstly to all the faults in my work (in a really positive constructive way) and to the massive variety that could be available including some that seem to be rare. I am going to look into specialising in making the spindles and seeing if I can make a collection of different types from around the world as well as the variations. I'll post some as I do them. Some differences are fairly subtle and some really obvious so it should be an interesting excercise.
