Unhook the yarn from the spindle, unwind the “candy cane”, and wind on the yarn, leaving enough extra to spiral up the shaft, through the hook, and extend a few inches above the top of the spindle. A note about winding on the yarn– try to keep the yarn in a squat, wide cone shape. Keeping the yarn, and therefore, the weight, near the whorl helps it spin better.
Joining: When you’ve spun most of the handful of wool, you’ll want to join on another piece of wool. Fluff out the end of wool you still have, or, if you’ve spun right up to the very end, split open and frizz out the end of yarn. Break off a piece of roving as described above and overlap the wool and the end of yarn. You want the fiber from the spindle end and the fiber from the handful to interlock and mesh, so the join will be strong. Twist the spindle to join the new fiber supply. Once you’ve joined them, rub your fingers up and down over the join. It should hold together and no tails or ends should pop out; the two ends should not wrap around each other– they should meld into one. Try pulling on the yarn. Is the join strong enough to hold together? Practice joining– it is important to have a sound yarn.
Keep Practicing: The yarn you are making will not look perfect at this point. And there is nothing wrong with that. Every spinner starts out spinning uneven, over-twisted, under-twisted yarn. You have to start somewhere. The important thing is to keep practicing. Don’t give up! You will get the hang of this.
