Making Out Like a Bandit

Christmas was very good to the Linnet this year. No, that's not quite correct - Earle was very good to the Linnet this year. Look at all this!

A Golding drop spindle, with a cherry butterfly whorl.

A Bosworth drop spindle, lighter weight than the Golding. The whorl is canarywood.

Camel and yak roving, both incredibly soft. Earle has spent a little time in the Mideast and he says camels really are that soft.

Two gorgeous colorways of roving from Spunky Eclectic - Sherbert (top) and Walking on the Sun.

Plus the latest Knitscene magazine and a 'kit' for making an itsy-bitsy knitted wreath ornament. Earle is definitely a pearl.

In other news, I'm taking a quick trip to visit my parents outside Philly over the next three days. I intend to stop in a yarn and spinning store in New Jersey on the way down, maybe Woolbearers, and my mom is game for making a trek to New Hope to Twist Knitting & Spinning. Here's hoping they're open this week! [I think I'll email and find out.]

Lovely spindles. And the fiber is so nice. Have fun in Philly/Jersey.

Oooh, love that butterfly spindle! And the roving is so pretty and happy-colored. You really did make out like a bandit.
