Spindle-making

Last week I got a parcel from Esme, filled with her handspun wool. I'm planning to knit a wrap out of handspun wool, and she contributed to that. So I have to learn spinning. I went to the hardware store and bought a wooden toy wheel and a round stick of wood and then I sat down and put everything i needed on the floor:

The hole in the wheel became a little angled, so the spindle doesn't run very smooth, but it works.

There is a top whorl and a bottom whorl spindle.

And this is my first handspun yarn:
