FO: Handspun Ishbel, and a spindle report

The Ishbel is done, and I must say, I’m so glad that this one will stay with me:

I spun the Pigeon Roof Studio’s Falklands fiber on my beginner 2.2 Schacht as worsted laceweight singles, plied into a plying ball, plied the two strands together on the same spindle. It took a long time, but I’ve gotten to be a better spinner for the effort. See the process in these photos:

And I’m showing off the spindles. I have two reasonably priced ones (the Schacht and Kundert), and a couple of splurges – the Spindlewood and the Amazingly Beautiful Asciano Spindle out of a central american wood (not endangered) that I can’t pronounce:
