Fiber to Yarn

So I take that cloud I made in my last post, put it on my lap:

And spin it:

My second hand goes about 2 inches below my left hand there.  The main work happens between my two hands.  That is called drafting.  Drafting is where I get the fibers into place for the wheel to twist it into yarn.

Strand one:

After I have 2 strands I ply them together = yarn!!
