what else haven't you told me?

I've been using my Spindlewood spindle to sample random bits of fiber. I decided I wanted to use it for something else, and since I was going to toss the singles, I just pulled the cop off instead winding off the yarn.

The first thing that struck me was how pretty it was, like a slice of a geode. The next thing was that I realized I'd made a center-pull ball. I can ply straight from this if I want to--no winding required. Does everyone do this, and you all have been holding out on me?
