Help Joining Yarn
I just bought a drop spindle at a local fiber festival over this past weekend. Had multiple sweet ladies help me get it down and I started spinning yesterday. I did two tests with just a strip and feel like I got the predrafting down to where my yarn is the same weight (or close enough mostly for me , but how in the world do I spin 100 yards?

I mean, I did as much as I could joining at the ends, but it got to be too much for my spindle. How do I get the yarn off the spindle but still be able to spin? or do I just have to get me a larger spindle? I cant seem to find any youtube videos or instructions on that process. Id like it to be one continuous piece of yarn

thanks so much for your help!
