My first try at spinning was with a drop spindle. I quickly moved on to spinning on a wheel. And, I never looked back...until now!
Two spinning wheels and three spindles later, I am logging some (too many) hours on spindle spinning. It doesn't mean that I am an expert but that I no longer have to be in-house to spin!
Some of the first small batch of yarn was put to good use with this Rebecca Danger mini monster. Despite it's small size, it was not fiddly to knit.

For less than $20 USD you can get a customized spindle. Check out the Etsy store, if any, for the happy colors of the spindles.
Spindles are a great, affordable way to get your feet wet on spinning. They come in all styles and prices. There is plenty of You Tube videos and information on Ravelry to learn from.
