in which there is spinning

Here’s what’s on my spindle right now:

First off: the fiber is Mama E’s c*eye*ber fiber, a 50/50 superwash merino and tencel blend in the colorway Masey. I picked this up last Saturday at Spinster Yarns and Fibers and spun some up right away, both because it’s irresistible in a sunny, summer sort of way and because I wanted to try out my new Turkish spindle, which seems pretty rad so far.

    I love Mama E! I got some of her sock yarn and chatted with her some at the Homespun Yarn Party they had in March in Takoma Park. That’s a really interesting looking spindle. Similar to a drop spindle?

    Is a turkish spindle used like a bottom whorl? I have a hi-low whorl Schacht that I use as a top whorl only. I haven’t figured out how to do it the other way. 🙂 I like the way you wind the yarn onto the Turkish one though. It looks like it would balance better than mine.
