I've become very interested in support spindles. PickleSue, a/k/a PickleSoup on Ravelry, is the one who got me really interested in them. And on Ravelry there are lots of very experienced support spindlers.
Well, Susan, a/k/a fleegle on Ravelry, is creating a book, Fleegle Spins Supported, if you are interested in learning how to use a support spindle and would like to purchase Susan's book, please go to Fleegle Spins Supported and add to faves. This will give Susan numbers so she will know how many books to have printed. Once she has these figures, she will know how much she needs to charge for here book.
Some of the support spindle makers have made tiny ones as ornaments. I so wish I had known so I could have gotten some.
Good description! I guess that's what happens when you stay up too late - lol.
Cute, Wendy. This is similar to Trindles. How interesting that the arms fold.
I haven't tried support spindles yet but am sure I will at some point.
I love to try new things. I just bought a couple of Jenkins Turkish spindles.
Can't wait to get them.
