I decided to, as a fun project for the Activity Day Girls in my ward, to teach them to spin using a spindle. I bought these from one of the vendors on my spinning list who makes and sells them. The Activity Day Girls range from 8 to 11 years old and I thought this would be a fun activity. I am sure the girls will enjoy them. 🙂 Hopefully I am training new spinners for the future :P.
It was time to reorder my smell good soap (one of the luxuries I decided I needed :P) and I have to say that Autumnoak makes the most wonderful soap!! She will even custom make soap for you. She loves what she does does and it shows! I love her Sandalwood & Rose and the Lilac & Lavender soaps . What wonderful smells and the soaps lather so nicely. I also love the way the soap lasts and doesn’t dwindle away quickly. You will have to go check out her etsy store and see all the wonderful soap smells she has for sell :).
She also sells roving and I bought some of this wonderful Punta and Wenslydale Wool roving (the beautiful blue and white roving). She also sent some very lovely Mohair roving for me to play with, I have never spun or handled any Mohair before and it is an interesting texture. I am excited to see what the yarn will look and feel like when I spin it.
If you spin you should check out the very nice rovings she lists on her etsy site. She is wonderful to do business with.
