Spin-diddly-spindle


SPINDLE!
Spindle, spindle, spindle
You know how if you say a word a million times it starts to sound weird? Spindle doesn't take long to get weird sounding. Spiiiiindle, spindle, spinnnnnnndle. I swear I'm not high, really.

I've had spindles on the brain lately. I wanted to get a new spindle at the SPA retreat. I want to become a better spindler and maybe I'll take a class if I find one. I think I'm fair at it but I'd love to become proficient. All I've been talking about seems to be spindles. Well, I'm not talking out loud or anything. Spindle, spindle, spindle has mostly been my internal monologue for weeks.

I made a new spindle, spindle, spinnnnnnnnnnnnnnndle....
And I took a craptacular photo too.

Click to see the spindle spindle large and in charge.

I'm really happy with this pottery spindle but I can see myself dropping it on our cement patio and killing it. I want a good wooden one. I've been asking around a bit. Yes, the asking has been external, it's the only time the internal dialogue has been external. Spindle spindle spindle.

I got a lot of info on what people like for spindles and now the decision is to get one now or wait until MDSW. Can I wait until May?

you MADE the ceramic spindle?? how much would it cost me to have you make me one????
 
You know you want a Golding spindle. Can't you hear it calling your name? :)

That spindle is great. Your a very talented woman. I know i couldn't make one myself.
 
Thank you. The pottery spindles will be around $28 when I actually can get a few done. I'll make sure to post when I get another made.
 
you knooooooowww that at MDS&W we will be buuuuuying these things... perhaps if you save your pennies we can get a golding together..... (come to the dark side. m'dear) who knows maybe I'll even buy a da-da-da SPINNING WHEEL!! eeeee!

not to mention I will finally have a spindle/spinning teacher in my house. woot!
 
I adore your grandma. She's da bomb.
Another spindle maniac....hurray! I have a whole herd of the things. Not that I spin on them much. Just like looking at 'em.
 
I'm confused by this "either/or" notion. You can get one now OR at MD S&W???

Silly, silly, child. Spindles are little. They are inexpensive. They are the potato chip of spinning... You can always have MORE.
 
How PREEETY!
 
Get one now and later! lol
 
My sweetie gave me a couple of Goldings a few Christmases past. They are great spindles. I highly recommend them. They are a midge heavy for spinning lace weight though. I'm eyeing a few of the smaller Goldings. I also love my exotic wood Turkish spindles, made by a brother/sister pair out of Oregon.

Yes, I collect them like people collect stamps.
