This website gives you color-coded stitch counts for turning different heel-flap heels. Pretty much the best thing.

I made these out of necessity, i didnt know how to spin, but i bought an amazing batt and needed a spindle made from something on hand.

You can see, each yo-yo yields 2 spindles (duh). The other side is lighter because it doesn’t have the cool springs that make it auto return. 

Cheap yoyos tend to crack during drilling, this was a yomega, but the kind that couldn’t sleep. I’d never ruin my nice yo-yos even though i don’t use them.

I’m working on a 3d printed spindle that uses what i learned from these. Theyre the only spindles I have ever used and they have spoiled me incredibly because they have no air resistance and are perfectly balanced, more than any wood could ever be. They are 35 grams and 28 grams. my only complaint is that they aren’t great for spinning singles for 24wpi 3 ply. I tend to spin thin.

If you want, I can try to explain how to make one with minimal tools. I could use another set.

3d printed spindles… That is brilliant.

I designed a few, they’re waiting for me to install the software on my new computer and export prototypes. In the mean time, I did some simple math, and even though i know nothing about physics, it is clear that the yoyo spindles will still spin faster and longer because of the density of the material.

I wonder if there are enough spinners in the world to offset the cost of opening a mold for streamlined PET whorls

Wow. I kinda have to make one now.

How long can I chill on this chaise lounge in the patio furniture section of Target before A) my husband finds me or B) the Target staff questions me?
