You open your Solstice gift, and discover not just one, not just two, but three Golding RingSpindles.
One two-incher weighs in at 1.6 oz.....
One two-incher is 2 oz.....
And this big boy is 3 inches and 2 oz., excellent for thicker yarns and plying purposes.
You ask, "How did you know...?" and the person you married says, "I found one of your spinning magazines and looked at the ads. I didn't know how big you like your spindles, so I got more than one. Are these a good kind?"
At a loss for words, you just nod. Yep, they're a good kind all right.
And that, my friends, is how a novice spindler came into her own personal fleet of Rolls Royces.
I may be a beginner, but dammit, I'm doing it in style, baby!
