Bamboo Spindles!

Announcing the first batch of Bamboo Spindles hot from Ed's lathe and hands! They still need to be signed and then go through the couple of finishing stages so they aren't quite ready to fly out the door but close!

These first one weigh from 1.4oz to 1.6oz and are sweet to spin! That's a puff of cashmere. Remember way back when Ed first tried his hand at a bamboo spindle and I first attempted spinning cashmere? Yes, they make a good match. $40 seems a sweet price too for these spindles that get total individual attention as each one is made seperately by Ed. Interested? Drop me an email salesATjenkinswoodworkingDOTcom

In other news: Cyndy tapped me for the eight things meme. I've been mulling a list over. Haven't quite completed it with eight things. Next posting. In the meantime here's something I found amusing from a totally different blog group:


  1. YOUR REAL NAME: Fiberjoy
  2. YOUR GANGSTA NAME: (first 3 letters of real name plus izzle): (Fizzle)

  3. YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite color plus favorite animal ) Red Horse

  4. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name plus street you live on) Joy Second

  5. YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (the first 3 letters of your last name, first 2 letters of your first name, first 3 letters of mom's maiden name): Jen Wanoc

  6. YOUR SUPERHERO NAME: (Second favorite color with favorite drink) Purple Pepsi

  7. YOUR WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (Men: father's middle name and mother's middle name; Women: mother's middle name and father's middle name): May Wickham

  8. YOUR GOTH NAME: (black, and the name of one your pets): Black Hank

  9. YOUR PORN STAR NAME: (the name of your childhood pet and the street you grew up on): Calico Star Route

I'd love to see what some of you come up with. :-)
That's it for today.

As usual, I too want one of these babies. We'll see if I manage to sneak one into my stash.

I'd love to see others pick up this meme on their blog. :-)

Thank you for your comment on my site !
I already wondered why your name sounded so familiar, but now I know , your husband made Anne's beautiful needles ! As soon as I can find someone who teaches me how to use a spindle I know I'll want one of his. Really nobody I know spins or knits however :-(

That bamboo spindle is a beauty, I epect I'm gonna be way down on the list for one of those, they're gonna be so sought after, although my Ebony is still so special. What an enjoyable meme, I've already got random things queued at the moment though!

The bamboo spindle is absolutely lovely, Ed is very talented.

The name thing was hilarious too, thanks for sharing it.
