Tutorial - Attaching Yarn to a Leader

I had a request recently about attaching yarn to a leader, so decided to put together a quick tutorial. This will work for both spinning wheels and spindles.

Step 1. Tie a loop at the end of the leader.

Step 2.Draft your fiber and insert through the loop.

Step 3. Fold fiber onto itself.

Step 4. Spin.

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
