Hints for using a ring sling on my back?

The ring sling I have was made for me by an AP mom from here. It is extra long (I am plus sized), I just tuck the extra "tail" in, or use it like a blanket over Imani. I find certain household tasks, such as laundry (our washer and dryer are not side by side, so I have a small space to squeeze into to get the clothes out of the washer) and dishes hard to do while wearing her in the cuddle hold (her favorite), I tried moving her to my hip, but she is only 4 months old and still a little wobbly for that. I would like to use my sling to put her on my back, but can't quite get it right.
In Kenya, women just tie a big piece of material on and it works great, but I am out of practice with that and find the knot in the chest uncomfortable.
Any one have hints or perhaps a link with pictures?
