Having 3 handspindles there's no excuse left. I have to learn spinning. To be honest, I tried several times, using online tutorials, but I did not get the hang of it. My big problem is to get the spindle twisting in the right direction. It just did not work out. Kind of frustrating. In the end I decided to look in that 'Spin it' book I have for some time now (and never looked at). There was one sentence about rolling the spindle on the leg towards the hip. I tried... and it worked! As there is some yarn around the shaft now, even the spinning itself seems to work.
Okay, the spun yarn looks very very slubby and I really hope it will improve.
