Do you have a couple old CD's? I believe this same Knitty Gritty has instructions on how to make a spindle from 2 old cd's and a dowel rod.

Also a TERRIFIC book for drop spindle is called Spin it by Lee Raven

I have just pulled this book out again to re-read it and I wish I had read it closer the first time I think I would have done better. I am going to take my time this time and do the little teaching exercises she gives that I skipped last time. Who knows I may figure out this spindle thing after all.
