I’ve been keeping the spinning up with a take-along drop spindle, quite apt in this sheep farming centre of the UK, with hidden gems like this to fuel the addiction.
I am getting to the end of my patience with the drop spindle; I feel an itch to get back to the easier, faster, wheel. Much less stress on the arm, much less time to wait for the wool to hit the sticks.
If you’ve been following either my twitter or flickr stream you’ll have been noticing a steady stream of spindle pictures recently. Hopefully these will be replaced by a steady stream of wheel pictures. Soon.
