I'm a mis-placed Aussie living in the UK knitting, spinning, weaving and dyeing to my little heart's content. Now with added gardening and cooking!
I was disappointed when I switched from spindle to wheel as I turned from making 8 st per inch sock yarn to producing funky lumpy designer yarn. My tip would be to start by plying some store bought yarn, it gets you to keep the wheel going the way you want it to go and gives you practice in filling the bobbin, you also get to see how the tension works without it ripping fibre out of your hand.
