I traded a Ravelry friend, Jesh, who has a super cool Etsy shop for one of her drop spindles. I traded her moneys and some merino/seacell fiber I dyed to her specs:

The spindle she made for me is so pretty and she included a little sample of baby camel fiber. Wow, that stuff is so very soft and spins like a dream! I don’t really use a drop spindle all that often but I love her stuff. I figure it’ll be a good thing to have for times I can’t use my wheel.

Here it is:

In other news I’ve been working on some new fiber, this is superwash Blue Faced Leicester from Frog Hair Fibers:


This is next in line once I’m done with that, also from the same seller, superwash merino:

Oh, thank you! I am LOVING the seacell merino blend, it dyes up so pretty and spins like a dream. I am definitely going to look around for a supplier where I can get it cheaper than retail because it’s so worth it!
