The newest spindolyn

This is the sneak preview of a new style Spindolyn ™ that I have been prototyping. It behaves a bit differently than other cross arm style spindles, making a tidy wind-on center pull ball, like that from a ball winder or nostepinne. I have a few construction elements to work out, and lots more test spinning to do, and of course an instruction sheet and video tutorial. But for now, I am in for a night of test spinning on it (oh, poor me, lol)

And I am stuck on the name. I wanted to call it the "starwinder" spindolyn but apparently that is a video game, then I thought of stella winder, moonwinder, lunawinder, satellite, orbitwinder or simply "CP spindolyn" (CP being short for center pull) Or maybe just simplify and call it the "ball winder spindolyn".
