I'm thinking of taking up spinning, as Noro is far too expensive for me to purchase on my own (I have a theory I can spin a similar yarn on my own for a fraction of the cost. Of course, I also had a theory that I could write a book and save myself from trying to read the entire library to find what I wanted in a book, and that turned out just lovely :roflhard: ), and I saw a video about the Spindolyn (http://www.knittinganyway.com/products/spindolyn.htm) on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLp40KZLU_8) while looking for instructions about drop spindles, as I can't afford a wheel or anything.

It looked interesting, and much easier to use than a drop spindle, and I was wondering if anyone else, hopefully much more experienced, had anything to say about the Spindolyn, or if it is worth the $26 investment.

I don't know. Looks like just another version of a drop spindle - with no drop. I think it all depends on if you would enjoy working with something like that. It doesn't really look like a bad idea, just different.

I'm a bit of a klutz, so me dropping, spinning, and controlling yarn at the same time would be... bad. :doh:
