Two new spindles found their way into my bag today. In my defense, I haven't bought new spindles in a long time. They are both Houndesign spindles.
These lovelies only come in two different kinds for a top whorl spindle, the Dervish and the Lace. I bought one of each. The top one is the Dervish spindle. It's 30 grams and it's Canary wood. The Lace is Padauk wood and it weighs 13 or 14 grams. I love the colour of that wood. I have about 3 or 4 spindles from that wood. I also love the little hounds on the underside of all their spindles.
I stuck around The Purl until just after 6 but not much knitting got done. It was just way too hot to work on the alpaca Forest Path Stole. I tried but I started falling asleep and had to put it aside. I'm still almost done with tier 16.
The spinning is coming along as well. I am almost done with the second bobbin in the Tour de Fleece challenge. I should start plying by tomorrow.
