Drafting the fiber.
Plying. This uses a spinning wheel though. Most people wind the yarn into two separate balls, place each one in a separate lace bowl (Or I just use soup cups) and then spin them together if using a drop spindle. Either way, this is some great information.

A couple of really good brochures about spinning how to.
And this article shows you how to make your own spindle.
