It really all started with this. I have been wanting a Trindle since my friend WillyG showed me his at our Tuesday Knit Nite. I had the express mission to snag one of these when I left for Sock Summit Saturday morning. But after two laps around the marketplace I didn't see any, I was crushed! Luckily, a helpful LSGer had the real scoop and gently guided me to where I needed to be.
There was no hesitation, I handed over my money, and walked away with my prize. The weight system and removable arms make this type of spindle really ingenious. Here is a link if you're interested as well!
Now after the trindle, I was more motivated to find some fiber to spin. I started looking for some beginners fluff. I found it at Fiber Optic Yarns.
I couldn't resist the Tardis blue. And besides, the trindle was lonely...
See?And then it blossomed. I needed some roving, some bright happy colors. After all, that's what I'm all about these days! So I went to the Woolgatherings booth and Saw the cheerful hues. I came away with these!
And that made the trindle even happier!
