What advice would you give someone starting this project? Spin a little everyday. Give yourself a chance to develop a rhythm. Don't give up when frustration sets in. Expect the worse - you might be pleasantly surprised when its not!

Thank you so much! Your compliments mean a lot coming from you. I haven't been spinning this past week, but I plan to get back to it this weekend. I should hopefully finish my first cop by then. Almost a full 3oz's of fluff turn to string!

Thank you so much! Ironically I haven't done much spinning since posting this photo, however, I think I am ready to get back to it!

It'll be much easier now, and a break can be good!
