I’ve never spun wool before and I had bought a Turkish Spindle a few months back hoping that one day I would be able to spin my own yarn. I thought….yeah…that’s easy peasy, I can do that no bother. Well how wrong I was. Just look…
No matter how many times I tried to master it, standing on the table, spinning sitting down I just couldn’t do it. As the Turkish Spindle creates a centre pull ball, I just couldn’t figure out how it could form a ball. “It’s not working, wheres the ball? Why isn’t it spinning?”
Mr Snobs said…the yarn spins at the top, twists and then you wind it around the base!!! Doh!!!! He’s never spun before, so he says…….only on the dance floor!! Oh!!! I see, I get it now!!! So again I tried, no luck. The spindle has gone to a new home now and hope that person will have better luck than me.
Then this arrived this morning…..
its beautiful. I had forgotton I had ordered it but I have no spindle. So I am on the look for another spindle in hope that I can master it and have come across Spindolyn (US shipping only……uh??) She makes it look ever so easy, such a natural at it and I want to get my grubby hands on one. Anyone tried it?
