I'm happy to say that my niddy noddy arrived one day after I blogged about the order. It's somewhat larger, or rather somewhat more bulky than I expected, and quite heavy. I wouldn't want to use it for lace yarns with a lot of yardage, though that might be good training ;-) It's beautiful though, and I like the smell of it. And it's collapsible :-)
I took the photo while the niddynoddy carried one of my latest yarns, soon to be listed!
We're still waiting for our spindles, and haven't heard from Ian yet. I do hope they will arrive soon, I can hardly wait to try them!
