She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. Proverbs 31:19
I love this verse because I am a hand spinner. Even though I have spinning wheels and charkhas for ‘production’ spinning, I love my hand spindles. They are like little works of art; all sorts of shapes, styles, woods, made of everything from pottery to fossil mammoth tusks. Hopefully this spindle is recognizable as a Cascabeles spindle by Gabe Jaramillo. I asked him for one with character and he made this one he called a rustbucket, :)!! It is full of patterns in the wood with little knots and streaks- love it!
ETA–When I drew this spindle, I hung it by the hook on a wire of my desk lamp and drew what I saw. I realize now that this doesn’t show how it looks in use. If I was spinning on it the little thread (single) of twisted fiber would spiral up to the hook and the spindle would be suspended from it- not coming off of the side as I drew it, that’s just how it looks between spinning sessions.
