The Joy of YouTube

So Google didn’t let me down.  I found a set of three YouTube videos by Megan LaCore (you should check out her cool website The Art of Megan).  These three videos take you very simply through all the steps you need to spin wool using a drop spindle.  The first covers how to draft the wool for spinning, the second covers the process of actually spinning the wool, and the third explains how to finish the wool and wrap it into a skein.  I’ve embedded the videos into this post so that you can learn the techniques as well.

Next step – actually spinning my first skein of wool.
