So what do you do when you are addicted to spinning but no time to spin...

Well I think it is easy to see in the short time I have been spinning (since Decemeber 2010) I am totally addicted.   Not a tiny bit addicted but ALOT.... having 4 children milling about, 2 cats, 6 kittens, and working takes its toll on the spinning time and the hassle of getting my lovely wheel out is sometimes not worth the bother for the 10 minutes I may get sooooo....

For my Birthday my lovely husband bought me this.....

It is a Gorgeous 23g top whorl spindle bought at Wonderwool in Wales made of yew and it is divine! I am seriously hooked on Spindling. It is portable, my beautiful hand crafted wooden spindle wasn't vast amounts of money and it spins like a dream!  I am a lucky girl indeed!

So whats more wonderful than that lovely spindle?  Oh yes the My heart Exposed fibre in "cheer me up stream" which I am currently spinning on it!  My photos could never captured the rich and fresh green tones in this fibre so soft and spring and heavenly to spin.... my favourite colour and spun lovely and even on the spindle...


So when I get 5 minutes I can pick up my spindle and spin a few arms lengths of yarn, then put it down high out of reach of children and pets....  I can spin a little bit here and there without lugging my wheel about, I can get the enjoyment in a more portable form, ideal for me at the minute.

Don't get me wrong, even mastering thigh rolling I would be hard pressed to spin as much as I do on my wheel as I love it so... but it's so liberating to be able to spin freely in the day... out and about.

I love spinning
