Still unfinished but tried, a wonderful spinner, my new True Creations Kick Spindle. I had Jim make me an extra shaft and 2 extra whorls, one is purpleheart and the other is zebrawood. I will be sanding it tonight so hoping to have a proper review soon. Just had to share the grain. She is lovely, isn’t she? Even without her finish.

Look what followed me home from Estes Park Wool Market this year:
I was really proud of myself. I had only bought $18.00 worth of yak and was about to leave. Then I walked by Susan’s Fiber Shop and saw the wheel. Before I knew what I was doing, I had asked to try it and then it was done. It spun so well! I have a Schacht Matchless in maple that I am not really all that fond of. I gave the maple one to the baby last year so I probably needed to get another, right? Plus, Susan was a sweetie and gave me $100 off which is awesome. (Btw, I love Susan’s Fiber Shop. She is so generous with her time and really knows her stuff.)
I lovvvee the changes they made to the Matchless wheels. I also love the painted black orifice hook. :) The new scotch tension is so responsive. Wonderful wheel!
I leave you with the grain that melted my heart!
