A Perfect Marriage

Still winter:
yurt winter morning

Still spinning:
hound design spindles

A perfect marriage of fiber and spindle: Hound Design laceweight spindles, both Paduak, from Acme Fibres (love the name, it reminds me of Roadrunner cartoons, as does their logo), and pygora/tussah fiber in Copper Canyon from Rainbow Yarns NW, which I bought from Terry at SOAR 2009.

pygora

This is about 80 yards of laceweight yarn, less than an ounce spun up so far (I have 7 more ounces, I have lots of spinning to do!). The colors of the fiber and spindles just make me sing. That is, after all, what this is all about isn't it?

I'd sing too, it's lovely (and not even green!). The photo looks as if I ought to be able to reach in and touch it.

That is seriously beautiful fiber. Do you have plans for the yarn when it's done?

Two spindles for ease of plying. Clever girl!

Amy and I spent two hours last Saturday with a local wood turner, also a friend. He was engaged by my spindles, so we took Amy's massive collection to his woodshop and are awaiting the outcome.

Do you know how happy I am that the spindles finally got to you? All is good and right in my world now ;)
