The drop spindle is practically identical to the one I already have and it has already done some plying for me. I was very good in only buying the spindle. They had an Ashford Kiwi on display and the guy in the shop was tempting me big time by telling me I could pay it off by instalments. I was strong... actually I think I was mad! Might go back on Saturday! They also had some fibre and carders and bobbins and and and... **slap!!**
I've managed 3 repeats of the cable pattern on the band for the back of Kepler so I'm not going to be getting a lot of that done before I go back to work tomorrow. Oh well, I'm sure having fun playing with my new toys!
