Swift Thinking


My daughter has finished spinning her colourful batch of roving.  After being spun, it needs to be wound onto a swift, dampened, then left to dry, so that the twisted fibre doesn't do crazy things, like unwind and tangle around itself.

We don't have a swift.

This is my daughter's compromise.

She wraps it around her weight bench.

Works quite well, too.

Spun dreams

My daughter has discovered the drop spindle, and she loves it!  She was gifted with some colourful merino roving for her birthday and this is what she has spun so far.

I am really looking forward to the finished product!
