Hi Patty;
I love the new studio. I was looking at the Golding spindles online and there are different sizes. I was wonderin what size you and Caron have. Thanks for your help.

Hi Debbie!

Thanks for the comment on the studio! We love it.

As for the spindles, I use the tsunami as seen here:

Caron has the Celtic Knot one show here as well but I am not sure if that is the one she had with her yesterday.

Hope this helps!
(I'll ask Caron the weight of the one she had with her.)

Hey Debi-

I'm very pleased w/ my Golding spindles - they go on and on and on and ... :-)

the weights of the two I spin w/ most are 1.9 oz and 2.0 oz - one has a 2 1/2" circumf, the other 3" - I can make a very small diam yarn up to ~ worsted weight+ w/ either

I also have a .9 oz spindle w/ perimeter weighting - find I can spin almost as small a yarn on my other 2 and they hold more, so use them more often

Lovely, what fun, makes me want to learn too. My SIL has a loom and spinning wheel.

keep us posted on your projects. I'll be thinking a name for Fluffy.

Hey Colourdujour!

Yep, spinning is such fun. I've discovered that I especially like to weave my handspun!

Still trying to decide a name for my little guy. Right now we just call him bunnr (it was a typo I sent to my sister - I meant to type, "Look at my new little bunny").
