I started spinning this 'Monet's Pond' from picperfic with enthusiasm, but recently that's waned and I've been spending the time on a different project. Why?
But with half of the first half done, the spindle is getting very heavy (the one on the right). I've seen people using much fuller spindles than this, but really, it wasn't fun. I'm spinning fairly fine, so it's taking more care to prevent the work from breaking, plus it takes more effort to twist the spindle and get it spinning.
So I've started another spindle and will have four before I ply. That'll mean a bit of joining but that's worthwhile in return for starting again on a nice light spindle which only takes a little flick to get it whizzing around.
