The Spindle Collection

I think this is most of them. I also think maybe this spindle addiction is getting a wee bit out-of-hand...

My friend Cindy took this photo at our October Spin-in at Sue's.

The spindle loaded with blue-and-white stuff is my Bosworth Moosie. I finally just measured that 2-ply silk yarn off from the spindle. 90 yards. I wish I had kept it as a single and plied it with some wool! I would have had 180 yards. As it is, the skein weighs 1/3 of an ounce. It's my own kettle-dyed silk roving.

If you were 90 yards of 2-ply fingering weight silk yarn, what would you want to be made into?

P.S. -- That was 180 yards of silk singles on ONE SPINDLE!!!!!! I can't believe that much fitted on a single spindle. The Moosie isn't terribly large, either...

Great shot, Paula! Love your smile and your spindle collection. We can't have enough of them for sure.
