I'm not so bad at this.
Yesterday when I got home, I found a nice little package waiting for me on the porch. It was my laceweight spindle from the Restless Peasant. An inexpensive little spindle that is absolutely gorgeous. It came with a cute little bag and some batt. Best of all, though, it came with some novel instructions on spinning laceweight. There's a trick in her instructions that enhanced my spinning tenfold. I think the trick will work for all weights of yarn, but for lace at least, it was fab. Want to see?
That's the spindle -- handpainted and flowery. Beautiful green whorl and nice long shaft above and below.
And here's the laceweight I got out of it last night (fingers included for scale -- I have very tiny hands).
