A new addition to the fold

Just look at this beauty, it's the latest spindle to be added to my collection, and I just love it! This beautiful Loki spindle made of Box Elder Burl was in the box as a gift for me from Elizabeth Daily, the creator of the gorgeous line of Greensleeves Spindles. I proudly carry her spindles in my store and ebay store as they are some of the most artistic and most beautiful spindles I've ever seen. Elizabeth has a real way of bringing out the potential in wood, as you can see from this spindle. I had a scrap of Merino/Yak roving (50/50 blend) sitting on my desk, so I've been spinning it on the spindle, which is not only beautiful, but spins really well! I've been doing a lot of my samples lately on the wheels, but I think this fiber is going to be spun on this beautiful spindle. And did I mention that I unpacked 20 other drop dead gorgeous spindles from the same box, but alas, they're not for me...
