Using a Nostepinne

A few days ago I watched a video on using a nostepinne to roll balls of yarn. Tonight I found a fat dowel piece that I could use as a nostepinne.  My first 3 balls were tall and football shaped, so I had to go back and watch the video over again.  I was keeping my wraps too close to the stick instead of gradually moving them further and further out.  I finally got a successful ball! Now if I can just carve my dowel into a more pleasing nostepinne.

Here's a photo of my yarn ball:
