If I Say So Myself...

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).

Thanks for your wonderful comments. I'll pass them on to my mother, the creator of these spindles! Glad you are enjoying your purchase! She is hoping to make this into a full-time business, so pass it on to your spinner friends!

Thanks again,

Tiffany from Colorado
