I tried a little while ago, and put it up. I am taking lessons in July for the Tour De Fleece from the very talented Linda who is well known in the Rhode Island spinning community (I am going to be checking out the RI Spinning Guild in upcoming weeks as well) so I figured I would "get it" then.
But then yesterday, at an ASPCA event, I met a lovely woman named Emilia who is a knitter and spinner as well and who really encouraged me to try some more before my lessons.
So, I broke out the spindle and fiber last night and did 15 minutes. And today, I did 15 minutes more. I am having trouble drafting (could be the fiber I'm using which is 50% merino and 50% alpaca which has a short staple) and there is no notch on my cheap-y beginner spindle so I have issues getting the yarn around the hook and have some parts that untwist so I needed to "respin" those sections. Consistency...eh...it's getting there. I have some bumps and thin areas but practice, practice, practice.
When I first attempted spindling, I was giving it a flick with my left hand. And I wasn't getting a lot of twist. So last night I tried the down the leg method and holy moly sooo much twist. I think when I shattered my wrist last winter I lost a lot of OOMPH in my left hand, so this is much better!
