I feel like a horrible liar if you think my previous blog was my absolute first attempt at spinning. To be perfectly honest, I plied about 15 yards of rope in the natural color right before spinning this spindleful. I don't like to consider that as yarn. More like a practice run. But it's there. I like to know how people get to where they are, so I offer you my mistake yarn to show more of this yarn's history.
Now for the question. I have heard about "setting the twist" of the yarn. Is this necessary? What's it do? and how do you set about doing it? You can imagine I'm eager to knit my new yarn up. Also, does anyone have a project suggestion for 86 yards of bulky/super bulky handspun yarn?
I'm including a few more pics of the yarn's story. one's for Albert.
And the last pic is the yarn in question.
