I admit I haven't done much spindling in a while. In fact, I was asked (while in Etsy Chat, yes a bit of an addict) if I did most of my spinning by spindle. Well..... of course not! I'm kinda impatient. Even still, I know a worthwhile product when I see one.
Check out these "Don't Drop Spindles" at Glass Pens. These spindles are made with borosilicate glass while the hook is made from Sterling Silver wire. I particularly like the Honey Brown Caramel (pictured left.) Plus the hooks are made one of a kind so once its been sold, you can't get a hook that's exactly like it.
For those non-spinning folks, Glass Pens also carries Crochet Hooks and Knitting Needles. (This is why its such a treat to pick up Interweave's Spin Off.)
