Happy Fibre Arts Friday!
Lair of the Bearded Dragon, the other half of Charly - the wonderful owner of IxChel Yarn & Fibres.
I was a little apprehensive of this huge spindle, but after watching this video clip a few times I found it was actually not hard to do. You lean the shaft against the side of your thigh and roll with your fingers, I'm only doing park and draft at the moment, in time I'm hoping to become more proficient. The motion is surprisingly soothing and it just feels like the most natural thing to do, there is something really earthy about it.
That's all from me. Thanks for dropping by, please hop over to Andrea's at Wisdom Begins in Wonder for more fibre fun.
Great story about the spindle and the bowl, looks divine!ReplyDelete
That bowl is GORGEOUS! I have been watching videos with my new support spindle too. I'm using my left hand for the long draw...and loving it.ReplyDelete
