Some people just do things better than me
I broke down and just bought a spindel from ebay. I could have bought a low cost $5-8 spindel but I thought that an investment of $20 was wiser. That way the spindel could carry me from beginner to interm. level. Since spinning has been stewing in my brain for two months I think it is something that I will love, like knitting!
Good thoughts are as important as good actions.
