Have you ever looked closely at the twist in any of your yarns? If not, you might want to. (We'll wait.) You'll quickly notice some are spun tightly, while others barely look twisted at all. The amount of twist — or the way the yarn is plied — depends mostly on the fiber it's made of (thinner ones need to be spun more tightly to stick together) and what it'll be used for (rug yarn, for instance, has to be tightly twisted since it gets walked all over). Paying more attention to twist when choosing yarn is yet another easy way to be a better knitter.

As a super busy mother of three, I often feel like I have to justify the time I spend knitting. There are so many demands on my time, it sometimes feels a little selfish to prioritize what at first glance may look like a hobby. But, my friends, it is so much more than a hobby. Knitting keeps me sane, keeps me focused, and, without a doubt, makes me a better person.
