Introduction: Yarn Tower
When I first saw the Build With Yarn contest info and how it displays the Wonder Wheels, Eiffel Tower was the first thing that crossed my mind when I thought "What will I make?". The truss frame structure of the tower is an amazing sight. However, it turned out to be more difficult to work on than I thought, so I wouldn't dare calling it "Eiffel Tower", I'll just call it Yarn Tower, inspired by Eiffel Tower.
