Welcome to the wonderfully addicting world of fiber!
I'm going to recommend a youtube video for you from Abby Franquemont. Abby is a great teacher of all thing spindle and will take you step by step.
Abby wrote a book last year for Interweave Press called "Respect the Spindle". I don't have a copy of the book, but I know it has received great reviews
