New Toys

We had a spinning guild meeting not too long ago.  Window shopping at our vendors left me wanting a support spindle in a bad way.  I searched around etsy and artfire for a little bit before finding Pumpkin Hill Farm’s Russian spindles.  They had a beautiful padauk spindle made locally.

Now I just have to learn how to use it. Supported spindles rely heavily on long draw, which has never been my forte. I also have to get my muscles used to the new potion.
