The Spindle I bought at Stitches South is very light weight and I like it's design. My Wednesday lunch knitting buddy gave me some yellow roving to practice with and I have been practicing. Drafting the yarn is definitely the hardest part to learn and since I'm doing it on my own, I'm probably developing some bad habits. A friend and I are taking an actual spindle class from our LYS in July so I guess I'll find out what bad habits I've learned. :-)
Here's what I've done so far.
