My Toy…

…that I’m too scared to use.

Although, Darkness wouldn’t mind playing with it.

I got this drop spindle for Christmas. Christmas 2009.


I’ve pulled it from its packaging every now and again to look at it, pet the roving and imagine the world of possibility it could bring. Then I carefully wrap it back up and put it away. I haven’t used my drop spindle because I’m afraid I’ll ruin the roving. I’m afraid I’ll drop the spindle. I’m afraid I will suck at spinning like I suck a crochet.


No more! On Sunday I’m treking into Oakland to A Verb For Keeping Warm to take a drop spindle class. I will use my beautiful drop spindle and I will make beautiful yarn with it!

God I hope I don’t suck at it.
