Greensleeves is all my joy
I recently swapped it away when someone else on Ravelry was looking for one. She offered me a spindle for it.
Truthfully, I am more of a spinner than a weaver (though I do enjoy weaving), and find myself strangely addicted to spindles. I don't quite understand the addiction, but I have several spindles of different sizes, weights, and varieties. I let her surprise me with the one she was most able to part with, and she parted with a Greensleeves McKenna Lee (ganked picture to the right).
I don't know what I'm going to do with the superfine sample of yarn I am spinning. And I don't know why I put yarn immediate on every spindle that comes into the house...it results in every single of the 7 or 8 spindles I own currently being used.
Also, I feel a little bad. I definitely feel like I got the better end of the deal. It's just such a beautiful little spindle!! And while the loom is/was a very pretty and useful little loom, I think the spindle is just far nicer.
