Spindle spinning

While my wheel hasn't been totally neglected, most of my spinning has been on a spindle lately. Maybe I should say spindles because I've been spreading the spinning time around thinly these days. Not very efficient, I know! This is one that I made with a bamboo skewer and a square thingy from Hobby Lobby. It's working pretty well on this Romney/mohair blend.
I also pulled out an old friend from my early spinning days-this spindle was made by Linda Diak
maybe 8 yrs ago-for a spindle swap our internet group hosted. I have Tunis/mohair on it.
There are other spindles that I'm using as well, but I'll save them for another time :~)

Wow!!!! Beautiful spindle. I admire your spindle spinning. I have several but find it difficult enough to use my wheel much less my spindles.
