Posted:OK - in my quest to learn some new stuff i've tried to do TTN and a waist wrap.

I've followed the instructions in my book to do a hip mill on the left side but i can't work out how to get the transition onto my right as i always end up in a weave. frown Any pointers?

Also TTN - no chance! biggrin tangles galore confused - again any pointers?

All advice/videos/explanations will be much apprectiated. smile

Posted:There's a waistwrap thread about. I recommed Glass' post The waistwrap contains elements of forward and reverse weave, but you miss half the circles out with the 'carry'. E.g. For the front bit of a waistwrap you go from halfway through the reverse weave on your left (poi spinning in circles behind you - right hand on top of left) to halfway through the forward weave on your right side (poi spinning in circles behind you - left hand under right arm) and then the hands and circles move back to the front.

For TTN - chances are when you do butterfly it's always the same hand on top. Practice butterfly with either hand on top. Then after you've done that for a while, go from having your weak hand on top to your strong hand on top in a one potato, two potato style.

There's probably better advice on this board if you do a search.

Posted:Thanks Dom,

Last night i got the waist wrap and also a continous spinning moving weave which looks cool.

Now for the TTN which i tried again last night and still got tangled - i think the tails on my poi are too long. Bugger!

Posted:hey hon!

good luck with the TTN - I found it helped to really over-exaggerate the movements, to the extent where you fully extend your arms to change your hand positions. Oh, I dont know if that makes sense - PM me if you like, or maybe I'll see you at the convention?

was good to see you along to the fire night on Wed.
