I am so glad that lack of ability with a drop spindle doesn't seem to translate into using a wheel. I just can't seem to figure out how to spin the spindle at a good rate and draft the fibers at the same time. I feel like I need at least three hands. :thinking: Maybe four! I was worried that if I couldn't use a spindle I won't be able to use a wheel.

We are picking it up tomorrow I can't wait!!!
