After a little practicing with my spindle of 34 years old I found to that it is too heavy to spin a nice thin thread. (50 gr.) The thread broke often and the little hook on top too. So time to search for what I need.
A friend gave me a tip for this site: www.spintollen.nl
They sell wonderful spindles
And so it happens and this one came home. It is a gentle small spindle of 23 gr.
Perfect to spin a nice thin thread.
The blue thread is sock yarn for 2,5 mm needles.
The wool I'm spinning is from a light grey Icelandic sheep.
I can tell you I'm hooked and I feel a new addiction coming :-)
ps. and for the quilters who read my blog... Yes I'm still quilting too. I hope to have a finish soon.
