What materials did you use? merino wool

What are you most proud of? Definitely how much I've improved over a short period of time. I still have a long way to go, but my yarn is starting to look like something I would want to use!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience, patience, patience! It looked awful to start with, but every yard looked a little better than the last. I'm still trying to find the balance between too much and too little twist.

This is great! You can see the progress you are making with your practice.

Thanks! I like the purple one so much that I'm nervous that I'll make it ugly when I start learning to ply, lol.

wow, those are your first!?!?!? Mine were so fat and bumpy, lol

Thanks! It was definitely not very pretty to start. I think my first one looks deceptively even in the picture with both spins. The one with just the white yarn shows the ugly bits better.
