So, one of the ladies on one of my knitting/spinning blogs was asking for a quick and dirty tensioned Lazy Kate. I uploaded pics to the Yahoo group but they're hard to find so I'm putting them here. I call mine Ugly Kate, but she works just fine.
I used fishing line on a darning needle, dowels that would fit all my bobbins, paper "straws" on my drop spindles that would fit on the same dowels, a phillips screwdriver to punch holes for the dowels...and that was it.
See the Glory:
