Squishy

Fluffy softness. Yup, that’s what’s been captivating my interest. Here are some of my latest spins. These weren’t done on my drop spindle, but on my nifty new toy. The Little Meggie. It’s suppose to be a kick spindle, but I just put it on a table and spin with my hand.

Handspun yarns Little Meggie

To fuel my new obsession, I had a fun hand dyeing/painting session in my back yard. Here are my new lovely rovings.  🙂 The great part is that they’re superwash merino. YUM!!

    Well, my daughter is newly obsessed with spinning, she just loves it and I’m enjoying watching her do it.

    And doesn’t ‘Little Meggie’ sound like a little bit like a vibrator?

    Whoa, when you get into something, you get into it!

    I love the yarn you spun up, looks kinda like Malabrigo or those other thick-thin singles yarns. Pretty!

    Nifty kick spindle – I’ve always wanted to try one of those.

    And OMG the Tainted Love! Fabulous!!! (Of course, now the song is running through my head…)

    I saw those kick spindles on youtube! They looked really neat. How do you like yours? How does it compare to spinning with a drop spindle?

    Yum! Serious gorgeous colors. How do you like your kick spindle? I’ve seen videos but never gotten a chance to see one in person.

    I saw that kick spindle at the fiber fest last sunday for the first time. Too bad I didn’t see it in action though. Was afraid to ask the girl who brought it with her for a demo. Those are some gorgeous stash!
