Argh, how did you do that? It looks so perfect! I've been sitting on my wheel the past two days, and what I produce is always overspun and curls up to one big ball... And your yarn looks so even! You really did a great job.  Smiley

No no no, it's all wrong! You have to start out making dense slubby overtwisted rope like the rest of us  Grin

Seriously, you're a natural. Most of us have to spend months to years before being able to spin that even, so definitely keep at it.

Out of curiosity, what make/type of wheel do you have?
I did notice that you said that this was your first time on a spinning wheel. Have you ever spun before on a spindle?

Whoa, thanks everyone! *doing a big blushie*

I have a Louet S61. I've had one go before at a drop spindle, but somehow I find it more difficult to use a dropspindle compared to a spinningwheel. Maybe it has to do with the pace and the type of wool I previously used (more coarse). Either way I really love working on a spinningwheel and I will definitely keep it up.  Smiley

You make me want to curl up in a ball and cry!!
I tried my wheel for the first time last night and your result was what I deluded myself into thinking i'd see..... but I didn't even come remotely close.

Wow!!!! You're my spinning hero.
