How to make a simple spindle

What do you do when suddenly you feel like learning how to spin thread, but have no spindle? You make one!
Here is how I made mine...

First, I rummaged the house looking for a wooden stick to use as a shaft. I didn't find any. So I snatched two pencils from my desk...

The I got an empty cd and a metal hook, which was really too big but it was the only one I could find. Then, most importantly.... 

(Yes, practically anything can be made from duckt tape. Did you see mythbusters make a boat only out of duckt tape? Well, never mind. Back to spindle-making.)

Voilá, it's a spindle! A bit clumsy, yeah sure. But for a beginner like me it's perfectly fine to start with. =)
