Third time this morning i've knocked down my light shade from the cieling. while we're on the subject, whats the best trick to move onto after "The weave" is mastered?

The only reason i'm scared of little kid's is because I know in ten year's time they'll be mugging me.....

how do you do the flower? (although i can practice at the mo my poi is somewhere else) ive been trying to figure it out without poi actually in my hand but thats just difficult




Do a 3bt weave, you notice that wrists go over one another, as the lower wrist comes out from underneath the other separate your arms and let the poi spin around once and carry on your weave...

I suck at explaining.

Another way is -

Do an async butterfly with the poi travelling in the same direction, separate your hands, and basically just do one rotation of that in a weave. :|

Kinda noobish I know, but last night I just managed to do "forward weave to backward swing". I still can't grasp "behind the back weave" and "backward weave" all will come in time i guess

Backwards swing as in backwards weave?

Well done any way, eventually stuff just falls into place and you think- wow I couldn't do that yesterday.

I wouldn't be stressing about any btb stuff just yet- in my opinion transitions are really important- it's like I can do a btb weave, but i can't join it to any other moves so it's pretty useless. My problem is with the english weather, at this time of year most of us are stuck practising indoors, and not being able to move about freely very much hampers finding those transitions frown

socks indoors are always good!they don't leave marks on ceilings and they're ever so ever so beautiful. I've got a tiny lil room in uni halls and i spin in there all the time.

ur right about the transition, its most important. its all about the flow, and things do have a habit of just falling in to place.

No backwards spin as in backwards and forwards spin, ya know the majorly basic thing, but i'm happy i'm slowly learning to combine moves

You're lucky that your sock poi don't leave marks on the ceiling. But everyone be warned: if your ceiling is dusty, then the sock poi will smear the dust as they scrape across it and this does leave marks! Surely these sort of marks can be cleaned off easily though.
