For years I’ve been wanting to name one of Ed’s designs “Chickadee” but as much as I wanted to use that name whenever he developed a new style I’d hold it and spin it but none whispered “Chickadee”. Until this April.

A friend asked if Ed would consider making a “baby Dovekie” something between the Kuchulu and the Finch. Ed was immediately taken by the idea. A week later Ed put a new spindle on the kitchen table for me to test. As soon as It began spinning I knew this was the Chickadee, a sweet, cheerful flyer.

To help ensure everyone has a chance there is a limit of 1 spindle per person per update.
