Spindle POP!

I received this spindle as a little treat from a lovely viewer of my podcast and I spent some time trying it out today.  It spins awesome, I do have to park and draft because its such a light weight spindle, it spins back on itself very quickly - I can't keep up with it.  Its about 5 1/2" from tip of hook to point of shaft and it weighs in at a mighty 5g.

The spindle is a Spindle Pop from Tilt-A-Whorl on Etsy.  The fiber is some left over superwash merino from Into the Whirled.

That's pretty fancy-pants! :-) I've only seen plain wooden ones.
