Most of my spinning has been done on a drop spindle....and some on a Louet....without a lot of success on my part....but with the Fantasia, I am finding I really CAN spin!!! This is my first skein, and with Scott's help my first true plied yarn. I AM NOW CAPABLE OF SITTING DOWN "AND FROM START TO FINISH" MAKE YARN! It's the little things that make our little fiber world rock! THANK YOU SCOTT for your patience and lessons!
