Turkish Spindle, My Love

  1. It spins forward forever. There’s no race against the moment it starts to spin backwards.
  2. Making a half hitch is super easy, in spite of my initial misgivings.
  3. Oh, how I love that you can just come up anywhere; you don’t have to flail around looking for the little notch.

But also, also, this is some Falkland top that came with the spindle and it is so much easier than the fucking Merino. Has some of my anger at spinning been because of a crap random choice of fiber to start with?
