That Old Spiral

I have never had much luck with the plain spiral- the one where you add the next bead and the beads that spiral around, then continue as long as you need? Mine were always floppy, and wouldn't keep a spiral shape, despite me shoving the spiral beads to the same direction each time. Funnier still, is that my usual overly tight tension was not used when I attempted this previously.
This time, I kept the newly added spiral beads in place tightly with my fingers, as well as keeping thread tension nice and tight.
It is holding nice and tight, for once!!
