hi there..got lots of links for you!
spinning on a spindle isn't that hard..it's just another thing to learn!
some people think knitting is too hard to learn :teehee:.. but it just takes patience and practice as do most other things
buying a kit VS spindle and fiber really depends on the amount you want to spend. i learned from watching videos and made my own..so i only had to buy fiber
the cheapest spindle is one you can make yourself.

these are all etsy links with full kits less than 20 + shipping
1, 2, 3
and i think this one is an okay value because of the amount of fiber included
if you want to buy the spindle separatelyhere is one i found for 5 dollars
and mullerslanefarm may have some spindles for sale that you can see here
