It arrived Saturday. My lovely spindle is just as lovely as I hoped it would be. Of course, I jumped right in with both feet. After all, I'd spent a full week researching and dreaming and readying my fingers. And I gotta say, I didn't do so bad, considering I spun this my second day:
Sure, it isn't perfect. I'm not sure I'd buy it. And my first attempt at plying was not so hot (will upload those pictures later this week).
But still, for a single, it isn't bad. This was my third attempt. The first I forgot to draft, the second I didn't draft enough or consistently. So this, my third, was much better.
