Leopard Wood and Merino Silk

So one of the good things about being out at The Fold several days this past week, I got to browse all of the new goodies that are there.  I picked out a beautiful new Charis spindle in leopard wood.

Of course you need lovely merino silk to spin on a beautiful new spindle.  It’s gorgeous and I’m hoping for some very lovely light fingering or lace weight.  I got 4 ounces – so maybe a light scarf or shoulderette.

I also picked up a new spindle bag made by The Bag Lady.  I liked this one because it had a zipper on the top and you could swing it around you.  I figure it’s just a little splurge.  We need it every now and again.

I started off on the wheel, but sometimes I love to spindle.  It’s simple.  You can pick it up and put it down.  I love the luxury wood and let me just say this one spun like a dream right off.  It’s a joy to spin.
