My old one on the left is pretty but it is too small and shallow. It rocks and rolls all over my lap when I use it. I suppose I am a bit lumpier down there than I used to be.
This one fits perfectly so the only thing I have to worry about now is spinning my way through France.
Edited because of Stupidity on My Part: That spindle should be on an angle to spin correctly. I was too worried about getting a decent photo while pretending to be spinning, that I neglected to show the correct position.
