Lace Knitting Set Up

Someone asked me a while ago how I manage my laceweight yarn when knitting. I offered to take a picture of my setup but never got round to it and now I have forgotten who asked. Anyway, this is my set up:

What am I knitting? It's an Estonian inspired shawl. Nupps and all!

The spindle that the yarn is sitting on is something I bought a while ago and it comes in handy for when I am knitting off a large ball of wool or cone. The spindle is free spinning which means that as I pull the yarn off the ball, no extra twist is added to the yarn.

I test-knitted this for a fellow Raveller. The pattern is here. In the larger sizes I think it's probably more suitable for a girl than a boy but I look forward to seeing how the other testers go. I don't think the neckline would suit a boy but then, I am always happy to be proven wrong! It's easy and quick - I knit it over 2 or 3 days. Perfect gift for a newborn!
