I've been spinning some BFL on an either/or spindle (hook on the top, notch on the bottom).
In the living room, I have a Babe electric, for productions spinning. I have various fibers (including the clippings from my long haired Chihuahua) on a Rakestraw Spinner, which, when spun up, will be knit into an amulet pouch for my granddaughter, who loves that dog! There's silk on the electric right now, and Finn on the Babe, as well as on the Little Peggy. The Finn is white, and will be probably dyed later, knit into a shawl. At this point in my spinning life, I tend to spin only lace weight singles.
I have TOO MANY spinning wheels!!! (never too many...)
Enjoy the spinning no matter what you use.
Somehow, though, I keep accumulating and adding to my collection of spindles, partly because my kids love them and partly because I use them for classes/demos at schools.
I had some singles I wanted to ply, and finally figured out Andean plying this weekend. A photo of the results can be seen here, and I put up a blog post about the downside of Andean plying here.
I haven't tried Andean plying, because I have lots and lots of bobbins (I have no idea how many at this point), but I know it's useful for sample skeins and short lengths.
