Many years ago when I was 16 I bought it on a market. It was demonstrated and it looks so fascinating to me.
When I came home I couldn't do it myself. Tho I never could part of this 'toy'. It moved with me to every place I lived. About a week ago a friend taught me how to use it. Now I'm hooked.
Finally after almost 34 years I know how to spin on my spindle and I can tell you it is fascinating!
