What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give advice? I need advice! Seriously, though, it's all about practice.

Any advice on what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

hi jennabee25! I don't think you're doing anything wrong!! This looks perfect! It doesn't looks like you've spun a lot yet so just keep practicing!! You can take this off and start over and try to get a bit thinner if you want to, but there's nothing wrong with this weight either! You may also want to try adding just a bit less twist if you stick with the bulkier yarns. Just make sure you watch Lesson 6 too which shows the park and draft technique, and then just practice some more!
