FO & more spindling

Alpaca socks for me
Working out a design element in my toe-up sock pattern. Worked beautifully, will add to the KAL soon.

More drop spindling — this time with a top whorl.
Maybe it is a function of learning this new skill — but while I very much liked spinning with my bottom whorl spindle, I am LOVING using this top whorl one. I am finding it easier to use and easier to handle.

  1. Beautiful socks and yay for knitting for yourself!! Alyssa and I bought a drop spindle many moons ago at a fiber festival in Michigan. It is in a drawer and has never been used. I admire those that spin in any fashion. 🙂

  2. Using a drop spindle is WAY easier (and more satisfying) than I ever realized. Any of your girls could probably give it a go…maybe even Z with assistance.
