Spindling.......and spinning a new yarn

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.

I understand that spinning is very addictive!

Yayyy!! I think I had my drop spindle for a few months before I decided to get a wheel. It's lots and lots of fun :) That's a really neat spindle!

Looks good so far. But I'm still holding out. I drug all my yarn out this weekend, and DAMN!

I'm impressed! And that comes from someone who spent most of Sunday afternoon playing with her spindle. Mine looks like a 4th grade boy scout did it at camp.! There will be no blog photos of mine.....

See, I have got to find my husband a job in TN! We don't have much spinning here (an hour away...) and no one seems to want to learn with me... Your practice seems to look good to me. I am pretty sure it is better than what mine would look like.
