I haven't done much spinning this year, and I much prefer using my wheel (Ashford Joy), but this spindle begged to come home with me and I couldn't turn it down.
I am embarrassed to say that I bought this. Not that I'm embarrassed, ever, by yarn purchases. I'm embarrassed because I totally forgot that I bought all of this wonderful wool/silk yarn, until I looked for the picture of the spindle. And it's still in the bag (probably with the receipt still in the sack),I did have a sweater in mind when I bought it- I need to find that pattern again.
And I bought these from the Peruvian vendor who always brings the most beautiful little hand carved flutes and buttons and sweaters and blankets and hats and ponchos and llama toys.
And all this wonderful fiber, which still remains unspun (I said I hadn't gotten out the wheel in far too long).
Anyway, I love NCFF and can't wait until Saturday, and I'll take lots of pics.
