Spinning 101 - Karlie Style

Below my left hand you can see yarn I've already spun. You can think of this as your leader yarn as well, if you've just started with the beginning of the roving twisted onto your leader. You can see the roving going over the back of my hand and dropping to the floor. The spindle right now is parked between my knees. ALWAYS PARK YOUR SPINDLE!

Above the left hand is loose roving. You never want your twist to travel above your left hand, because you'll get big thick sections in your yarn.
