1  Will this spindle work for a beginner? in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by CynthiaFaye on: February 20, 2008 05:16:47 PM
My mother (I've nicked named her "madame tries too hard") overheard me talking to my roommate about my desire to learn to spin. 

Two days later (yesterday), I get an email saying she's bought me a spindle and is sending it my way.

this is what it looks like:



It's a top whorl.  According to my mother it's got a 1.2 ounce weight, 2" whorl, and has an 8" shaft.

Am I entirely effed?  Is this too light?  I'm really excited/worried.  So... what do you think?
