Looked pretty cool, but it seems like the moves you can do are limited.

Posted:split your timing into 4time
1left,2right,3left,4right
instead of both left(1-2)then both right(3-4) ...thats a sewing-into-centre move i found
when i borrow rainbow faeries orange poi that match mine - from Nick n' Ali
no stretch i found to be best controlled
'where the wild things are' party- i had a bit of a breakthrough

close your eyes sometime with double poi`s

Posted:I haven't tried this yet, can use a meteor badly in my right hand, as a staff. Can't do a one handed butterfly. My left hand is currently beyond hope, much work needs to be done

but.....

I was floating around looking for something yesterday(ish?) and found this thread.

"a butterfly turn", which is rather splendidly about this. I wasn't even thinking about this sort of thing but it's really quite a good read.

Anyway hope it helps somehow, many thanks to jonathon and Phunky.

Now I've just got to build a second set of poi.
