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?
