I am a sucker for gadgets. I inherited this from my Father who ordered every new gizmo that hit the market. He was curious about how the new tool worked and so am I. This one, the Rakestraw Spinner is not new, but it is new to me, so I ordered one ( http://fibers.downinthecountry.com/) and spent some time yesterday learning to use it. It took me a little while to get the hang of it, but the web site video helped and by the time the televised National Dog Show started, I pretty much had it down and happily twirled away while watching my favorite dog win Best of Show.
