Check out my super-crazy thick/thin and overspun/underspun first ever skein of yarn! I challenge you not to laugh at it -- it really is crazy looking. I knew it was uneven on the spindle, but the underspun parts REALLY got pouffy once I soaked the yarn to set the twist. I do feel a motherly affection towards it though, because it's my first-ever attempt to spin anything. It's only about 23 yards of BFL. I struggled with the fiber. I know a long staple length is good for beginners, but this felt almost TOO long for me. I kept wanting to have my hands about four inches apart to draft, but the staple length was longer than that -- that's where most of the underspun parts came in -- they were spots I struggled with the drafting.
I keep picking up this little mini skein and petting it, admiring the luster. I will probably just keep it in skein form as a reminder of my first attempt to spin. Hopefully someday I'll be much better at it and I'll look back at this with a chuckle.
