Jenelle, here's some advice I gave someone else recently about spindles:
If you think you'll be spindling for a while, I would recommend starting with a good spindle vs. a kit spindle -- after a few weeks on the kit one you'll more than likely want to graduate to a different one! There are several that are good but still very affordable -- the Schacht Hi-Lo spindles are $16 and come in three weights; Cascade has a great little spindle that's $20 (the Little Si) and Greensleeves has a "bare bones" spindle that's supposed to be really nice, only $15.
I really, really think it's worth the extra $5 to get a decent spindle vs. a kit. :D
