Q&A with Andaia

Dru Pettibone asked:
Love it!! Did you make the spindle yourself!? The yarn is looking great.
Andaia answered:
My father in law made the spindle for me--he's pretty craft-y too. :-) I'm working on my second skein of yarn--it's much thinner and more even. Practice definitely leads to improvement! Question: I think I'm over twisting and my yarn is very ropy and not very soft although the wool is extremely fluffy and soft. I'm afraid to twist it any peas though because it breaks. Would a smaller, lighter spindle help? Do you have any other hints? (I haven't finished watching the course so I apologize if this is already covered!
