Yeah, we like to see your progress.

The way the Sky Rocket is generally done, you go around once with your right hand and the left hand is used to cross the string, as if you were going to wrap the string in the same direction. That way you just need one full wrap with your right hand and none with your left hand. It will also work with bearing tops (but perhaps not as well).

I made your signature smaller until you get your top signature  ;)

Your right hand should wrap once, just like you did, but the left hand should not wrap at all, you just lay the left string over the right string, which makes a twist in the string near the top.  It is much easier and more consistant that way.

I learned the sky rocket without a wrap.  String over the top, hands together, when top is leaning away, sharp upward pull--presto.  Does not work when the top is straight up, then a wrap is necessary. ;)
