Holiday Stash Enhancement


As you might have noticed I’ve been a bit quiet over the holidays.  I ended up flying home to Missouri with was an adventure in and of itself.  Just say no to flying through Chicago O’Hare.  I came home a week ago Saturday and then my brother and dad came up for the week.  Tons of fun!

I didn’t really enhance my stash much for Christmas but I did get several spinning goodies!


Akerworks Bobbins.  I got two new Akerworks bobbins for my mini-spinner – one for the lace flyer and one for the woolee winder.  They’re so colorful and I love the bigger shaft on the lace bobbins.  I’ve ordered two more since then for a total of three lace and three WW.


Hedgie Threader.  Also from Akerworks, a threader for my mini-spinner.  I actually like this one better than the Hansen one because its longer and curved.  And the little wheels on the hedgie actually work.  So cute!


Battery.  Woo-hoo! A battery for the miniSpinner.  It’s the RavPower 15000mAh which means it should run the miniSpinner for about 15 hours on a single charge.  It’s easier and more convenient than finding a wall outlet close enough to where I want to spin.


Yarn.  This wasn’t technically part of Christmas but my mom bought it for me the day after Christmas so I think it counts.  Three skeins of Shibui Knits Staccato (70% merino, 30% silk) – two in green and one in gray.  Love it!


Spindle. Lastly, my wonderful and amazing new Turkish spindle I got from my friend Patty.  I’m usually a top whorl kind of gal but this thing is pretty awesome – it makes a center pull ball.  Still learning on it though.

  1. I’m loving the recent influx of 3D printed spinning tools! They’re so colorful and full of possibilities. Also, Shibui Staccato is AMAZING!
