This is the spinning I have accomplished after two earlier tries with fiber that wasn't as easy to work with for me as the Romney has been. I also believe that using a park and draft technique on this spinning until I really got the hang of short-draw drafting helped me.

Thanks. I was saving it for my wheel, but whenI had such a difficult time learning with some Merino fiber I had purchased, I decided to go back to the Romney that had always been easier for me to work with. It really did the trick, Your class is great! Thanks so much for helping me begin to get the hang if spindling.
