The Fall 2006 Issue of Spindlicity, an online magazine for hand spinners, contains a couple of interviews with drop-spindle makers, a few informative articles on spinning including one for beginners, and a fall themed knitting pattern.
The two interviews with drop-spindle makers are with Linda Diak of Grafton Fibers and Steve Kundert of Kundert Spindles. The interviews reveal how the makers got started making drop-spindles and the type of spindles they make.
The articles include one on spinning metal and how one spinner developed a process of doing this. The beginners article discuss the different types of spinning including top whorl and bottom whorl. There are also articles on speed spinning and keeping a fiber notebook.
The fall inspired knitting pattern is Falling Leaves Scarf by Tilda Shepard. This scarf has a lovely leafy lace pattern made from Romeldale/CVM roving spun to a worsted-weight single.
The issue also includes book and product reviews, a special section for kids, and reports on fiber festivals.
