Or should I just use the string as a clothesline to hang my underwear?
I would use that string for cross string. I would use a little more string for the mains, and keep the extra length on one side. Once the mains are done, on that longer side hold with starting clamp and not tie off as yet. Then start cross strings with the 17' piece that you have. If you do not have enough string to complete your cross strings with that 17' piece, then you have that extra length that you are holding with the starting clamp to complete the job.
Simple as that.
