LOL! Well, I suck on my spindle...I only did it for a day and a half a while back, but I just didnt find it too appealing to my tastes, but I do think it would be nice to be able to spin my own yarn
And I have only one knitting friend who lives in a suburb about 30 mins away - keep in mind, I'm car-less lol. And she made me my spindle.
That would be SO neat to have a friend with a wheel! Is a spinning wheel the same thing sleeping beauty had?
