Spicy and I ended up attending MDSW on saturday only. it was really friggin hot. i think that living in western new york has forever spoiled me. i can't stand the heat anymore. it was a nice time but very crowded. we spent a lot of time in our hotel, catching up on the glories of air conditioning and cable tv. oh cable tv...how i've missed you.
i did remember to snap a few cute animal photos. you can't go wrong with baby goats and rabbits.
i ended up purchasing 2 spindles.
this is a bosworth featherweight, canarywood whorl and birch shaft, .46oz.
this is a golding ringspindle, 2" cherry whorl in LeFleur, walnut shaft, .45oz.
i like both of them but they're really different. the bosworth spins a long time, while the golding spins very fast but stops relatively quickly. i'm working on some jacob fiber i got at the festival.
