a 3D printed spindle

This is a gift box set from New Age Spinning etsy shop.

The spindle spins really well and it didn’t mind at all when I dropped it a few times yesterday. This will be perfect to bring with me to woolly gatherings where nobody blinks an eye when you spindle or when you drop things. (There are, however, always quite a few people who love green at these sort of meetings so I might have to keep an eye on things!)

It’s so handy, with its own little cute box. And so colour-coordinated! This is the very first gift box that the shop owner put together. She wanted it to be a present and she chose green as a colour for me. Well chosen. In the shop you can choose your own colour. However, I advise all of you to choose green so I can bring mine to gatherings and we won’t have to “test our friendship”.

It comes with a cup so you can use the spindle both as a drop spindle and as a supported spindle. I haven’t mastered supported spinning yet. Which is probably a good thing because I’ve seen people fall in that rabbit hole only to emerge with arms full of beautiful twigs and the dreamy look of satisfaction in their eyes.

Two adorable sheep charms and twenty stitch markers:
