What are you most proud of? That I was able to do it! The spindle spun me around at first (so to speak), but I did get the hang of it. Now I have to learn consistency. :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't worry what it looks like! Just spin. Also, I have found that dyed combed top is easier to use, because it separates into smaller sections more evenly. And the smaller, more uniform sections make spinning easier.

I was wondering if it was the colour spinning class you took?

I took both the spinning with color class, as well as the stuff to fluff class. :)

Did you find that the class was relevant to spindle spinning? I was going to order it too, but I wasn't sure if it would be useful if I don't have a wheel.

I found that both classes complimented each other. While it might be a little more challenging with the colors on a spindle, the color spinning class gave me a lot of ideas that I could use on a spindle.
