As requested by @yarnmagician yesterday, here’s a video of the distaff in action! Swipe to see a photo of how it sits on the wrist, as well as how it looks undressed. The distaff is made from wild pear wood and is 5” long (not including the strap). ETA: Apparently Instagram cut the video a little short, but that’s okay; there wasn’t anything important lost.

As good a job as my supported spindle was doing at doubling as a distaff, I never got used to holding it while spinning, so I decided to switch to my wrist distaff from Maine Fiber Tools. It’s so nice that I’m tempted to get a second one, though I doubt I’d really use two.

Ocean's 8 (2018)
Director: Gary Ross
Starring: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham-Carter, Rihanna, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Akwafina, Richard Armitage, James Corden

6 out of 10.
All-women spin-off of the popular caper franchise does not offer anything new to the genre. Similar to another all-female reboot of a beloved movie, Ghostbusters, this also has mixed results. The heist centered around the Met Gala and the technology utilized are not as complex and intricate as its predecessors. The characters are underwritten but still serve their purpose. It could have dispensed with one or two ladies and renamed it as Ocean's 6. Out of the eight actresses, Bonham-Carter enjoys the best part as has-been fashion designer Rose Weil, while Rihanna as computer expert Nine Ball, comes off as the weakest. Bullock gives another cookie-cutter Sandra Bullock performance and gets to deliver some lines in German in which she is fluent in real life. It starts quite slow but gains momentum towards the end. The premise, the actors, the numerous cameos keep things afloat and interesting enough. If you want to save money on a ticket, best to wait for it on digital or DVD.
