First Handspun Yarn!

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.

Q&A with Lauri22

IntentionHill asked:
wow, those are your first!?!?!? Mine were so fat and bumpy, lol
Lauri22 answered:
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.
Dru Pettibone asked:
oh my goodness!!! these are so lovely! i would never have guessed they were beginner yarns.
Lauri22 answered:
Thank you! You're a great teacher! I'm excited to see how my next attempt turns out.
