Husband and I have different ideas about doing projects.
I use a hammer. He uses an air gun. He likes things with motors, where I prefer tools that I control the speed, by how fast I move it.
When I first started spinning, Husband watched for a little bit. He kept looking curious about it. I finally asked what he was thinking. "You could do that so much faster if there was a motor on it..."
Well, yes, I could. But I actually enjoy doing the treadling. Husband later bought an electric spinner, which I do like to use, but strangely, I don't enjoy it as much as the other. Probably partly because it takes a bit to set up, where I can just sit down and start with my wheel, but it just seems like I am not really spinning. Hard to explain, but the machine is doing the work, not me. And I also use a drop spindle, now that I have found a new way to spin without it hurting my shoulder... Which is also extremely portable.
Husband likes to cut grass with a mower. If it's a huge area, yes, I will agree. But I like to use a scythe. This has a great advantage. I get exercise, it clears the grass quickly, and boy, when people see me walking out to the front, I get the most unique looks. And I get to watch people go by REALLY fast...
But, I guess my favorite hand tool? Knitting needles. What else can I use to make something warm, scratch my back, or get something off a high shelf with one tool?
And the back thing can be very important!
