Last year my good friend Helen gave me Spinderella and taught me to spin using a drop spindle. I was doing pretty well until I realised that it was actually hurting to use, and my arm ached dreadfully (yay for Fibromyalgia!). After not touching Spinderella for a good few months, Helen decided I should try spinning on her trindle... and look what I created:

And I plyed it too! Its black and plyed! There is 13 grams of plyed yarn that I created!

Unfortunately the trindle is rather expensive, so I decided to get a lightweight spindle of around the same weight as the trindle. I bought from IST Crafts, and they emailed me this morning to say it has been made and is being oiled and they hope to mail it out next week! I'm so excited! In case you're interested, I'm getting the tulipwood on sycamore with a walnut shaft :D

I can't wait! Its going to be sooo good to be spinning again! Will definitely keep me amused during the unemployment period!
