Awesome Comp!

I couldn't go to the New York Sheep & Wool Festival this year because my health is very bad.  I waited until two days before and reluctantly decided not to go.  

My straight mate Dan felt so bad for me, he told me I could spend what he had budgeted for NYSW on fiber related stuff.  So I ordered a pound of roving from KnitPicks, a Namaste Buddy Case and - get ready - a Golding Spindle

She's a 3" whorl, 2.2 oz., solid ebony beauty!  Here she is upon arrival yesterday:

And here she is unpacked (and a little fuzzy, sorry):

And here is a photo of her lovely whorl:

Piccies of the roving and Buddy Case when they arrive!


  1. That Buddy Case looks nice--and it costs little more than the plastic box I bought recently. And thanks for the info on KnitPicks. I see they have lots of neat stuff at affordable prices. That's often hard to find when it comes to crafting supplies.

  2. Beautiful spindle!! Sorry you couldn't make it to Rhinebeck, but what a consolation prize! Let me know how the buddy case works out, I've been covering one too.

    Love you!
