1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Newbie yarn on: January 05, 2006 05:38:06 PM
Wellll, I finally got the hang of spinning on a wheel - There's a certain rhythm to it... and I don't have rhythm, so it took me a while to actually get it.  Anyway, here's a tiny, teensy bit of yarn (about 10 yards) that I actually like.  It reminds me of candy, sort of.

2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Newbie question about overspun yarn on: December 22, 2005 01:23:58 PM
I recently bought a Babe wheel - I've read instructions and how-tos, but when it comes to actually spinning roving into yarn, I'm having a problem.  I've been using yarn as a leader, then attached a pre-drafted piece of roving onto the end of it.  The yarn/leader spin around the bobbin just fine, but the roving itself only twists and twists.  It doesn't make its way around the bobbin.  I've tried changing the brake, but nothing has worked thus far.  Any tips or techniques?

Here's a picture of what the twisted roving looks like when I'm trying to spin.
