Oh, my. That's amazing. And I have to say it never occurred to me to go to YouTube for videos of spinners. As a newbie, you have just opened a very dangerous door for me! Thanks--I think. :)


That's amazing.


HI! I found you!!!!! THanks for being so patient with me last night - I'm totally obessed. We got home at midnight last night, and I was down here at 7 Am playing with the spindle.


What a hoot - what a character! I wouldn't have known what she was doing if I had just seen her. It just didn't look like spinning to my eye.

wicked neat. Imagine spinning on the go!!


And she does it with no more energy or attention than if she were playing a guitar.


Wow, I am impressed... I am not sure I will EVER be able to walk and spin with the high whorl, let alone tuck something into my belt and keep a supported spindle going. Thanks for sharing.


This is especially interesting to me as the Online Guild, http://www.onlineguildwsd.org.uk// , is doing a spindle spinning workshop this month. Thanks for sharing!

And to think I can hardly walk and chew gum at the same time. She can support-spindle? Geez.

This reminds me, I have a bunch of photos that my MIL took at a charkha vendor's in Mumbai. He had some very interesting ones--the kind that look like steamboat wheels rather than the attache-case kind. If you're interested I'll see if I can remember where I stuck them.


I like the set up making it portable while on the move. What a character!


Seems like there's a lot more to this spindling thing than I thought.
