Oh dear. Just watched over an hour of YouTube videos. Started with Abby, watching her spin, then went on to silk hankies, then knitting machines of all sorts (no thanks, I'll stick to hand knitting). Ended up watching crazy math guy do his schtick, fun, he must be a laugh a minute when he's off his meds.

I've got to stop following you around, Rachel!

I have an easier time putting the spin on a bottom whorl, but a top whorl seems to spin a longer time.

I know! Get one of each!!!!

Does anyone know of any online videos showing the difference between top whorl and bottom whorl?
