It's made by Kundert Spindles in Wisconsin ~ the type of 'wood on whorl' is Butternut (so much to learn...my head is whorling! what the heck is a 'whorl?' and what do those numbers '1.2' mean?). Thanks Jeff for picking this out for me ~ I love it even more knowing that you went there with a mission to get this girl spinning! It is gorgeous and after I've stared at it for a couple days and am not afraid of breaking it, I think we will become good friends!
My chaotic schedule and a freaking sore elbow have kept me from getting much knitting done (it's not a knitting related injury but I'm thinking I may have to lay down the needles for a bit or it won't get better ~ SHOOT!). I've been working on my Cranberry Capelet ~ I'm just past the halfway mark (it's more like an oversized dickey right now ~ remember those from the 70's and 80's?....shudder). I've had to modify it as I go since my gauge was spot on with swatching but tighter on the actual knit. Not a big deal since it's top down and I can try it on as I go. I'm loving the fit, and the yarn and color are perfect ~ the cables really pop!
Guess that's all I have to share for now. Unless you want to hear more about my awesome spindle ;)
I'll spare you and just add one more picture of my new toy ~ I hear people name their wheels...I might have to find this thing a name! ~ Melissa
