I've been having an adventure with a new spindle and flax fibers. The flax is probably from the beginning of the 1900's
My supersweet husband made this spindle for me, the "legs" are detachable to change the weight of the spindle.
It took awhile to figure out how to spin the flax, it acts very differently to wool. With a lot of help from Knitty, and especially the towel trick I've stardet to get the hang of it! This is the evenings results.
