This is the thread for our February Virtual Guild discussion.
This month, the discussion turns to using handspun yarns for knitting. While our primary focus remains on spinning, the main purpose of yarn is to use that yarn for making something else....which makes it logical to consider how handspun yarn behaves when it is used in knitting, especially since the goal of our Virtual Guild is planning and executing a project from start to finish.

Consider: Twist, though it may go dormant for a time, is always active. Since twist is always active, manipulating yarn causes changes in twist. Changes in twist can affect the way the yarn behaves when it's used for knitting. The whys and hows are here: [url=http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art42499.asp[url]

Thanks Llyn,

I knew that the direction of the twist affected a knitted garment, but not which direction had what affect on the knitting. Thanks for writing this information for us.

Ok, I can't make the UBB coding work.
I have tried:

[link]www.the url[/link] the coding shows in the message but it does not make a live link.

[link]http://www.the url [/link] which gets me an error message

and
[url=http://www.theurl[/url] which also shows the coding but does not create a live link

So, what am I doing wrong? Anyone?

Well, dran - why would it partially work in my message asking for help but not in the original message? Interesting.....

Ok, one more attempt:

The article on knitting with handspun is here:


And Bellaonline's knitting site is here:
[url=http://www.bellaonline.com/site/knitting


If this doesn't work, I'm giving it up in favor of spinning.

That only partially worked - The link for the knitting site take you to the main page, not the site. From the main page, click on "hobbies & crafts" and then on "knitting to get to the knitting site.

I do not know why the link to the article did not even appear. The coding seems very straight forward, yet I simply can not make it work. I apologize to all of our forum readers for this diversion into coding woes, but I have no where else to go to test whether I have it working or not.

Where do you recommend getting wool for spinning. I'm having some trouble finding some.

I did practice using yarn and now I know it was me not spinning correctly.

I would recommend CopperMoose. They have many different types of rovings and until you have a bit more experience you might feel more comfortable with a well know seller. ..Nikki
