SOFT AND SMOOTH

I couldn't wait to sample a bit of the newly carded wool by using my favorite drop spindle.  Since it had been a few years since I used the spindle, a lot of dropping occurred but soon enough I had it spinning and not slipping from my fingers!  
The Cotswold wool is spinning up beautifully! 
 I think I want to try and make a spindle whorl on the lathe.
The last row of weaving has taken place;  the shuttle won't get through any more so I stitched the last rows together so cutting can take place and today I will be hemming and then washing the towels!

  1. I don't spin (and do NOT need another hobby!!). I like your towel.

  2. I could never seem to master the drop spindle. Yours looks wonderful and the wool looks like a puffy cloud.
    The towel also looks great. You are definitely the master of many crafts.

  4. The towel is SO pretty.

    I would imagine doing a whorl would be tricky. Does it have to be balanced just so to work right?

  6. That reminds me that I need to dust off my spindle projects before the Tour starts. Your towel is beautiful! My poor loom is gathering dust thanks to all this renovation stuff going on.
