Lubee : your christmas yarn is so fun ! May I ask if you really intend to knit it with these cute little gifts or do you remove them before knitting ?

i am really sad to admit this but i have never actually knitted anything that i have spun.
i either sell it or give it away.
but if i were to knit it i would leave them in and use a bigger needle size.

LOL Laamissa! I love how the name makes us look at the yarn in a different way!

I've been pondering on buying a similar tool. It works like a football rattle doesn't it? You spin it around?

How do you find the drafting if you have to hold the yarn so much higher than your other hand which is spinning the tool?

Jane Doe - Autumn Watermelons is such an awesome name! And it fits the yarn so well. I'm very un-creative with naming my self-striping yarns - I just pick people names instead.
 
Tinkerbellforever - Thank you!! I think I got over my fear of bad color combinations after I spun my first few scrap yarns and realized that you can throw pretty much ANY colors together and it'll look good.

Yah, you just move your wrist a bit and it spins. It's so easy a kid could do it. In fact, my almost 2 year old loved it so much I made her one out of a pencil and cardboard and she even got it to spin. Sometimes. A little.  Grin
You can draft two ways- Park and draft: put it down and use two hands or Long draft: get the right amount of twist into the yarn so that you can pull with one hand only. It's hard to describe and takes a bit to 'get'.
