more spinning tales

Currently spinning the rest of the Corriedale roving from Maryland Sheep and Wool using my new turkish spindle from knitpicks. This spindle can be configured as a top or bottom whorl drop spindle. Since I used a top whorl for my first spinning adventure, I wanted to mix it up a little by giving a bottom whorl a try. Really liking it so far. I love how the spun yarn is easily wound up into a center pull ball as the spinning progresses. Managing the cop was one of the issues I had with my first skein but this spindle makes it so much easier to prevent things from getting unwieldy. I am taking my time and trying to make the yarn be more consistent. Although it is going to be hard to resist starting on some tempting new fiber treats that just arrived the other day.

And I couldn't stop myself from adding to my budding spindle collection. Look, bunnies!


  1. I really want a Turkish spindle. Now you've really upped the ante by showing me one with bunnies! I love that Sunshine Yarns roving; it looks like candy! And confetti! Gorgeous.

  2. Good for you!! I can hardly wait to see what you make with all that beautiful roving :)

  3. Oooh, I wish I could sit with you while you spin .. I've always wanted to learn but definitely feel like I need someone to show me. Love seeing your spin-in-progress!

  4. Lovely bunnies!! And pretty rovings.

  5. Fun! I've never tried a Turkish spindle. The bunny spindle is also super cool, and you have some pretty fibers to play with!

  6. you have really jumped into this spinning thing with both feet!!! (and multiple spindles!!!!) --- and you already have a stash! :)

  7. Aloha,

    Luv the bunny spindle. Where did you find it???
