that actually looks great! if a little thick. but my first try was uber bulky too! i knit an awesome hat with it, though! =0)
Those twistie bits wouldn't look so twisty if you held some tension as you wind onto the spindle (btw- I learned on the same ashford!)
So when you're spinning on a spindle, stop when you're at an arm's length then wind it on. you don't want to keep too much tensino on it, just enough so that it doens't wind back on itsef as you get it around the shaft. Try to wind it on in the shape of a cone. more at the whorl and less at the bottom. That way it won't wobble as much when you spin it as you keep building up more fiber. Other than that, can't help with the leader thing. I'm the girl who never used one till I got my wheel. Just hook the roving pull out a little and twist and go! too impatient for things like leaders.
need. yarn. now.
keep at it! show us more pix!

hehe that was over a month ago.....lol check the last few fiber fridays...I've been posting there.
