The spinning is coming along...

Not bad for a beginner!

Since getting the wheel for my birthday last November, I've been very remiss in spending time with "Anansi" (that's the wheel's name).

Most of what I learned about spinning with a wheel has been through reading books and trial and error, resulting in very mixed (aka pretty crappy) results on the bobbin. Anyway, yesterday I met with a spinner at my local yarn store where she sat with me, watching and giving me some pointers -- the biggest was "stop treadling with the music, you're going too fast!!"
