I, too, have traded in my knitting needles for glorious spindles (and in the future a wheel) I find it so calming and relaxing and it is is amazing to see the yarn that I can produce as I get better!

:) Malkavian6, i too, plan to purchase a wheel in the near future. I am knitting a cowl with my handspun, it is amazing to knit with fibers twisted through our own fingers.
