We've enjoyed reading each and every one of your entries. Keep an eye out for future giveaways on Spinning Daily.
I love spindles.
They are beautiful, unique, and each has its own personality. Spindles are portable and easy to take a long when a spare moment for spinning arises.
Abby Franquemont's book Respect the Spindle is my go to resource for spindling. She is so knowledgeable and covers such a breadth of information in one lovely book. I love that the book covers the history and mechanics of spindles, gives suggestions for finding the right spindle for you (and your fiber), and starts with the basics of spinning with tons of photos and tips for common problems and then covers every detail of spindles I can think of from how to flick the spindle to where to hold it while you are drafting. There is even a selection of projects to sweeten the pot.
