Tigereye batch

The "Tigereye" batch of hand dyed thread is now in my etsy shop. I named it after a gemstone with similar coloring...browns to gold.

The earring I am working on here is another new design I thought of this past weekend. It was inspired by some large square earrings I saw a friend wearing.

I really, really, really wish I could wear earrings! The thread is gorgeous!

Would clip-ons work? I keep intending to get some clip-on styles done, but haven't had time yet!

Yay, I bought some of this whoo hoo!
O.k., so how did you get it wound back on the spool?

Thanks for buying!!
What I do is wind it with a hand cranked yarn ball winder - which makes a really sloppy-looking ball in this size thread! But it's manageable. I've seen that some people wind theirs onto an embroidery floss holder. It could also be wound around a card, or a paper tube.
If I had a ball winder that was capable of making neat, attractive tiny balls, then I could sell my thread that way -- anybody know of such a contraption?

I know how Sapna feels. I've got mine so I can look at it and contemplate it. "Doing" is still the thinking stage!
