Doomed. No question about it.

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.

Yup. That's the beginning of the end! Next comes a spinning wheel, then it's back to the sheep farm. You remember sheep? Those stupid, smelly critters we had back in the US???
