Spinning wheel practice

I was very pleased to receive a complimentary bag of alpaca sliver with my Louet s90. And as it was free I could learn spinning with second thoughts :-)
For the first exercise I span one thick and one thin single and then plied them together. The major problem as I see it was not enough twist, but I am learning.

Another training. Today I've bought some rayon fibers to learn how to spin synthetic ones. To make the task interesting, I bought four colours in hope to combine them in the process. So far yellow and blue. I suspect I still give less twist than necessary. Will see...
