Will wonders ever cease? I have been trying to get into this blog for a few weeks, and then magically, just now, it’s worked!
I have been working my way through the Spinner;s Advent Calendar from Barber Black Sheep and my intention was to blog each day with my thoughts on the various wools and such. Of course, now that I am on day 22, there seems little point in going back 3 weeks to try to recapture each spin, so scrap that…
Instead, let’s go to the fabulous new spindle that Elizabeth got me for xmas! It is so adorable, a Mini Spindle Kit from Akerworks. I got the 8 inch shaft and the Honeycomb in magenta.
It spins like a dream and is nicely balanced. It comes in 2 pieces, the wholr, and the shaft, and is designed to come apart for safe packing. I don’t see myself actually doing this, as it is pretty compact as it is.
It seems to easily revert to back-spinning all of a sudden, but this has not been an issue in my single falling apart, so perhaps not a concern. My initial reaction was to go order a few more, but really, I have quite a stable of spindles already, and one at a time is all I seem to manage.
