I am feeling a tad seasonally affected. Yesterday was cold but today? Well, Toby was very happy to see his wool sweater this morning. Winter is here. We are fleeing south in just a few days, so I really have no business complaining.
So there I was moping about the icy roads, my ill-preparation for gift exchanges and the like when the mail lady called. Talk about a mood swing! In a massive, perfectly packed box came the long-awaited Golding Tsunami. Cherry 3″ whorl & walnut shaft:
Courtesy of Mom. She says (on a long-distance call) I must “put it up.” I laughed my head off at that one. We agreed on a don’t ask; don’t tell policy. If you notice, the cop of yarn spun itself.
I have it on good information that this Golding is fierce! I also loved how Tom & Diane listed the contents for USPS. It’s printed as “drop spindle.” Handwritten beside that for the good folks at Canada Border Services is the best explanation:
Hand tool used for spinning wool into yarn.
I did finish the Wham Bam cowl tout d’suite. With no Malabrigo yarn to spare.
The fold is so deep because I had so little yarn left for seaming. Here’s how it looks on me:

Project name is Instant Cowl. I am torn between getting more skeins to make this for the other 2 sisters, and working my spindle. Torn but leaning in favour of the spindle.
