A Spindle's Plea

I got home from work today and saw the spindle sitting on the couch.It looked kind of sad and lonely there all by itself, so I flipped it over and about screamed when I saw that the spindle now had a face!(ok, yeah, I suck with the drawing. Bear with me, I'm trying to be comical for once :oP )

The following conversation occurred:

Me: Uh, hello....what's wrong, Mr. Spindle?
Spindle: I'm sad...
Me: Uh, yeah, I see that. Why are you sad?
Spindle: You haven't picked me up since you got back here. I haven't had any new alpaca put on me in a while. This old stuff is boring now. Can't you finish up that roving?
Me: Well, I've been crocheting the baby blanket this week...
Spindle: Ask the yarn if she would mind?
Me: Huh?

I looked down to the blanket and was shocked to see another face!Yarn: Meh, I don't mind. You worked on me all day anyways today, so I could use a break.
Me: This is all a little freaky...
Spindle: Will you spin some tonight?
Me: Will it make you stop crying and stop talking to me?
Spindle: At least for now...
Me: Deal!

And so I spun...

Knit on...and don't neglect your spindles and wheels because they will be sad...
