Thanks for everyone who shared what they are thankful for. We've enjoyed reading each and every one of your entries. Keep an eye out for future giveaways on Spinning Daily.
After Thanksgiving, I can't stop but think about how thankful I am to having spinning in my life. It brings me joy in so many ways from yummy fiber to lovely yarn to exciting projects. One part of spinning I am especially thankful for is spindles. What an amazing way to take my spinning with me on the go and make progress on projects even when life is hectic.
Abby Franquemont's book Respect the Spindle is my go to resource for spindling. She is so knowledgeable and covers such a breadth of information in one lovely book. I love that the book covers the history and mechanics of spindles, gives suggestions for finding the right spindle for you (and your fiber), and starts with the basics of spinning with tons of photos and tips for common problems and then covers every detail of spindles I can think of from how to flick the spindle to where to hold it while you are drafting. There is even a selection of projects to sweeten the pot.
