Look What I Got for Christmas
... a beautiful drop spindle, of a beautiful cherry wood and brass ring. The photo doesn't show its beauty. I will post better pictures soon.
I spent a few hours today spinning Romney I got at Sebastopol Apple Fair in the fall.
Spinning with a spindle is fun! A bit easier than the wheel, I think -- a little more control. Now I can spin pretty much anywhere -- thank you Santa (a.k.a. Charlie)!
The Father and Son socks -- both with Lorna's Laces (Daddy's -- Worsted, Blackwatch. Son's -- Fingering, Georgetown).
Back to spinning, now I know why people prefer to dye the roving, instead of dyeing the spun yarn. It's so much more fun to spin beautifully dyed fiber. I should get busy dyeing my white corriedale.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas day.
