There were a couple of other purchases back at Coronation that I didn't mention yet. First, this lovely forked stick. Is is a slingshot? A dowsing rod? No, it is in fact a distaff.
I also got another stick. This one, with its handmolded lump of metal on the end, is a bottom-whorl drop spindle.
This is 50g of silk roving.
Yes, I plan to start spinning. I am doomed.
