  1. If I didn’t love you so much before, I’d love you now. That totally covered EVERYTHING I had a question about with drafting!!! You’re so awesome. 😀 OH..and now I can use the carder on loan to me and make bumps and actually know what to do with them!!!

    • hehe. I’m probably going to do one of these for drumcarding as well since it’s been asked for. I just have to figure out positioning and mic-ing first, might move the carder into the spare room… still thinking that one out, requires more maneuvering 😉

  2. Boo hoo, I can’t get this one to play here or transfer to my iphone. It kind of plays on itunes, but is choppy. I see a Quicktime plug in error message here. Strange, because no trouble with your other videos.

  3. Still can’t get it to play perfectly, but what I was able to see and hear was wonderful! I didn’t really understand pre-drafting and my spindle wasn’t spinning very long at all before going back the other way. I think I see what my problem was. Thanks so much 🙂

  4. If I ever get the gifts my sister apparently sent me I will then buy a spindle if that is not one of the things she got me and then I can watch this again. I have a feeling I’ll be one that would pre-draft the hell outta things.

    • Everyone learns to spin differently, I’m just showing how I do it, I know people who think pre-drafting is a bad word(s), and refuse to draft until they spin, I am not one of those people, I predraft and I inch worm, I can do long draw and from the fold, but I rarely get what I want that way, and refuse to practice it more often than not when I can just go back to what I’m comfy with and what I feel works best for me. I’m sure you’ll make some magical yarn 😉

  5. Thank you so much for posting this video! You have shown exactly what I’ve been looking for in all of these spinning books I’ve borrowed from the library. Thank you so much!

  6. Sadie,
    Keep up the good work on the spinning videos. They are so informative and helpful. I really appreciate them.
