Bottom whorl spindle vids
Hey everyone! I just got my roving and my first drop spindle, a bottom whorl. Which videos are the best to help me out? I'm trying to spin but it's not really working out...

"An excellent woman, who can find? She is far more precious than jewels . . . She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands." - Proverbs 31:10;13

On the right side of the page, there are videos that show it. This site is great for so much. There are also spinning basics on You Tube with Abby Franquemont. I'm pretty sure it shows a bottom whorl.

ETA: Yes, here's the link.
If you search You tube with her name, you get all kinds of goodies.

My biggest thing was how to wind the yarn onto the spindle after I put twist in. Abby shows that too, how she winds it on her fingers in a figure 8 sort of move, or like making a butterfly of yarn.
