A New Addition

I got a brand new spindle! I got a brand new spindle! This is my Mini Bossie from Sheila and Jonathan Bosworth. It's Tasmanian Tiger Myrtle and it weighs 0.64 ounces or 18 grams. Its just beautiful! The wood has some apricot colors in it and in daylight it looks almost iridescent. This is my first Bossie, but it won't be my last. I'm also on the wait list for a Moosie: the spindles they make from Moose antlers (moose, or meese, naturally shed their antlers and the Bosworths make gorgeous spindle whorls from them). The mini hank sitting next to it is the puff of fiber they sent with it. Its a great little spinner and should be perfect for spinning the Mongolian Cashmere Top I got a few weeks ago when I was in Colorado. I have a question for any other spindle spinners out there, do you try to coordinate your fiber to your spindle or am I the only crazy one? Inquiring minds want to know.
