Well, I'm a bit of a knitter but have a knack for all things manual. My girlfriend has no desire to knit because it may bore her to tears. I don't blame her, it does bore me sometimes. However, she has shown interest in spinning yarn. So for her birthday I reserved a drop spindle class for us at the LYS. I, being a person that will latch on to something novel have already started looking at wheels. Whew! There are a lot to choose from and none cheap.
Slow down cowboy!! I think I should should start with just drop spindles.
