some years ago I had a chance to try spinning and as a result I have plied two-colored yarn that is quite uneven. I would like to use it for something as I really like it, but I have no idea how large project I could do with it (I was thinking of knitting something). I just weighed it and I have a little over 200 grams. I have hard time describing the thickness as I don't really know all the terminology in English. It looks like something I would knit with size four needles (I guess I'm using Europian measurements for needles). The main question is: does uneven handspun yarn behave differently from bought yarn?
Also another question. As an exercise I plied two shop bought yarns together (I thought it would be a good idea) and the result is a yarn that has a terribly tight twist in it. It kinks and after all these years the twist still hasn't settled and unravels if it's not tied. Could this kind of yarn be used for something? (Anything?)
(Oh, I wish I had time to practise spinning right now!)
Than you in advance.
