Are you as crazy about spindles as I am?! I love my spindles! They come in various sizes and shapes; weigh little and spin wonderfully! Easy to travel with and easy to store, and sometimes, easy to make! Need more information on spindles, then check this out Ask The Bellwether
I have several of these 'wheel' spindles--these can be made to give as door prizes or
gifts. In fact, the price is small too! It takes only a toy wooden wheel, a cup hook and
a short piece of dowel rod (over time, I have come to favor 6" length on the dowel)
Some of the spindles are painted, some left plain--I also have couple clay spindles.
I've even made spindles from old CD's, using a grommet to secure on dowel--it came be a
top or bottom whorl
In this photo you can see the rubber grommet on the dowel--I've also been known to
use a door knob for spindle top. But, on the other hand, I've purchased some
expensive spindles by fine wood makers
These are my storage containers for my fine expensive spindles--
saves many a broken spindle
And here is what is inside--
This is my most expensive spindle--Golding--the weight is just perfect for spinning silk!
Oh, yes, you can never have too many spindles!
