(cue the dramatic, triumphant music)

i do believe that i have achieved a modest spinning breakthrough last night and tonight. (drum roll here.) i am drafting relatively successfully. (okay, that was probably a bit of a let down for anyone reading this, but it feels like a darn bid deal to me.) before i was predrafting the fiber within a wrap of its life. now i'm drafting from a relatively thick chunck of roving. and last night i was looking at a catalogue (i don't know who's selling my name and address, but as long as it's to fiber sources i like it!) and realized that the metal prong-thing that came with my wheel is actually a lazy kate. at this rate i might even attempt plying before vv visits.
