Spinning for Feral Beginners

my spindle and me

Managed to sneak in a few minutes of spindling yesterday at the Port Markets. It's deadline season, so my woolly pile is just sitting there. V. sad.  Using one of these gemstone spindles (above). The picture isn't fab --- I worked a shorter hook on this spindle and really like its speed. On the spindle -- McLaren Vale CSW (South Aussie of course). It is going to be a 2ply for a shawl. I hope.

Really want to spin this hand-painted CSW (merino x) -- Wanting to see how the new deep blue blends.
