Vindicated! Proof of spindle breeding


As you can see, here is a good example of spindle offspring. These spindles are from Quantum. The one on the left is a bubinga baby butterfly (say that fast more than twice), and the other is a canary butterfly. Even the names imply that spindles breed. So I obviously can't be to blame for the number of spindles in my possession, as they've quite clearly been doing the nasty when I'm not spinning with them.


Even these Powell spindles bear a striking resemblance to each other, indicating a genetic bond. There's 35g tiger maple and ebony and a 45g pau ferro and ebony. Virgin spindles that need a good spinning.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! The Quantums do seem bigger than what I would have expected - I'll have to go look at mine - I think the BBB might be the same size as mine, which would make sense as mine is a baby, too. duh.

That Mr. Powell sure does a nice job, eh? I love mine to pieces, I hope you like yours, too!

And yes, I believe my spindles have been breeding, too. And they've learned how to order friends over the phone, the little dickenses.

I want you and Kerry to come over here and teach my spindles a thing or two about reproducing themselves, 'kay? Those are very nice looking spindles. I'm looking forward to the review.

Get spinning! Lots of us want reviews of the new spindles. Nice sunshine too.
