Spindle Widow

Standard

My poor little Jenkins. I hardly knew ye. 

   
 
This happened last night while I was test driving my Turkish spindle. The single I was spinning broke and the spindle dropped. I caught it reflexively (but not violently) between my calves. Snap went the cross bar. 

Guess I’m not taking you to France after all, little guy. 

I’m sending him (how do I know it’s a him?) off in the mail to the Jenkins spindle hospital today for diagnosis and treatment. Or a possible transplant procedure.

  1. Oh no, that’s a shame! I have two Jenkins (an Aegean and a Lark) and they’re both good little spinners, I prefer the smaller Lark. I was going to suggest you take that one on the plane, the smaller spindles are easier for me to spin while seated. Good luck on your trip!

    Lark is a great idea. I’ll put that on my list for the future. Jenkins was just at Black Sheep Gathering in June, so they seem to be out of spindles right now.
