About three weeks ago I answered an "ad" on Facebook for one who was looking to trade some spinning fiber for a spindle... And much to my surprise, Scott Snyder of Snyder's Spindles responded to me :)
Two weeks ago, we talked about which spindle I wanted, and what fiber he would like... let me tell you, there were just too many choices for me to just pick one... So, after going back and forth with him, we cam upon an agreement of two spindles, and I would purchase another one... It was a great decision!
I received the spindles before I ever finished Scott's rolags, and let me tell you, I was extremely pleased with what I received...
First, the original spindle that I picked out... I honestly do not even remember what kinds of wood it is made from, but I loved that there were three colors on the whorl... it was bigger than I originally thought, but it pulls lace weight all day :)
Here she is :)
I love this pic...
The second one... is a "baby" Turkish spindle... I just had to have a mini spindle... it is super light weight, so the spin isn't very long, but the more you get wound on there, that little guy will go! I keep this one in my bag at all times, because you never know when you are going to need to spin :)
Don't you just love it?

I'm not sure why, but this pic just makes me smile :)
The third one is a little bigger... still a Turkish, just a smidge larger... I love the color contrast with the two different woods, it is super pretty and I enjoy spinning it...
Taking a nap, lol...
