Mama's first yarn

Not so Sexy first skein
Not so Sexy first skein
And the second
Kinda of sexy second skein
Kinda of sexy in a ball

You can really see the difference between the two, though the second one still has barely spun, over spun and really thin bits in it too. I never really got the whole “setting the twist” concept until I soaked these tiny skeins and hung them to dry. I hung them from a hook and weighted them down with one of out huge umbrellas. The difference was noticeable right away. I have a long way to go to reach Ms. Harlem Purls skills but I’ll get there someday.

  1. Cool! If you’ve already progressed like that from the first one to the second, you’ll have this spinning thing down in a week!

  2. That’s wonderful. My first yarn looked exactly like yours did so don’t feel bad at all. Make sure you keep it so you’ll have something to look back upon when you’re spinning like a pro basketball players rims.
