  1. spinning cotton is more difficult than spinning wool. the fibers are much much shorter and have to be spun very tightly (fast). i use a tahkli support spindle to spin cotton. unless you have a lace flyer, it is very hard to spin cotton on a wheel. i've never tried using a spindle..... my guess is that it would be just about impossible, though:( HTH;)
  2. a while back i saw a pattern for a little bitty hand held coin purse that somehow turned inside itself to keep coins snug... i think the pattern said it was 'mad' money, for a long time ago when a young lady was on a date if he proved to be a cad, she would have money for a taxi ride home..... grrrrr... did i make this up?
