...best part...joining sleeves to body and knitting up the yoke...and becoming familiar with the delicate yet sturdy plötulopi. 
Things that have helped:
★ gently, loosely, hand wind to a ball ★ always leave slack, unwinding several lengths before knitting (never pull) ★ weave in any ends or tails and mark your beginning (or they will disappear)
★ yarn bowls or any smooth bowl help to lessen tension
★ somehow even though this unspun can pull apart at the slightest tug, when actually making stitches it is very determined. It wants to be knitted. And the most beautiful fabric it makes (worth the 😳moments!)
