Frankly, I started to nag. I needed these things. I sent him links to my favorite shopping spots, The Woolery, Etsy, Paradise Fibers. I mailed my favorite spindle to him. I mailed him pages torn from Spin Off magazine. I even mailed him a bundle of fiber to spin. He asked if I wanted him to start working on making his own sweater from scratch. Not yet, first I want spindles. And yarn bowls.
And finally, one day, he came for a visit. He brought beautiful spindles!
