New toy!

On Monday I ordered a new toy. And today it arrived. A .75 oz, 2" Golding La Fleur in Cherry. And it's so purdy...

These little guys come packed very very well! The box would hold a pair of tennis shoes and was stuffed with packing peanuts. Once it got here I took it for a, um, spin. I spun up some little wisps of leftover merino top I bought when I was first learning to spin. .

I like how it spins - very smooth, very easily. It has a different feel from my entry level ashford spindle, and reacts differently to extreme overspinning And it sure is tiny! Sometimes my yarn would break and it would go clattering to the floor and I fear for its safety.

I think this little spindle and I will be great friends.
