Drop spindle #3: How to make your own lazy Kate, and how to ply two singles together

This is video #3 in a series of four videos on how to spin with a drop spindle. In this video, I’ll show you how to make your own lazy kate, and how to use the drop spindle to ply your singles together. We cover how to set up for plying, step-by-step explanations and demonstration of how to ply, how to get started again when one of your singles breaks.

Key points to remember:

  • Make sure the bobbins are oriented to pull the singles off in the same direction
  • Ply twist goes the opposite direction of your singles
