Ceramic Drop Spindle

Today I got to try out my new drop spindle whorl.  I had to sand down a pencil to make the spindle and then I pushed a wire into the eraser to make the hook.  I was afraid the spindle would be too heavy, but as you can see by the photos I got it to work just fine.  It's wobbly, and I don't know if that's the spindle or the hole in the whorl being a bit off center.  But it works and that's what matters. I think I've been a beginner for about 15 years now. My hands are tired, not from the spinning, but from the sanding.
