I finally made it to the spinning store and got myself a spindle and some wool. Between crocheting blessing dresses again, spinning, and tying quilts for my boys, I finally have something to do besides read and blog.

Actually, I wasn't really that bored, but I find that I like to have things to do with my hands.


  1. It took me a minute to realize the spindle is a part of the spinning wheel, not the whole thing. Is your wheel cherry wood then? Those spindle ends are unexpected and lovely.

  2. Those aren't my spindles, sadly. I wish I had some as beautiful as those. I really should mention it when I post a picture that isn't really mine.

    And I just have a hand spindle. If we ever stay in one place for more than a year, I'd like to get a wheel. Cherry wood would be perfect.
