When your hung over from the pirate cruise, apparently you spin. My first 'novelty' yarn I'm calling 'Satellite'.
This is Falkland wool, 'asteroid' colorway from Black Bunny Fibers spun up with a few beads. Some crystals and a few tiny little stars. I know a lot of people don't like their nice wool polluted with beads, but I do enjoy a tiny, tasteful bit of sparkle now and then. The color and the name of the roving was just screaming for it.
It was my first time spinning with beads. I simply threaded a bunch on a spool of thread, put the spool on my lazy kate along with 2 bobbins of singles. I plied them together, occasionally pulling up a bead and letting it get twisted in there. Easy.
I allowed my singles to get a little sloppy instead of spinning slowly for a even thread. I wanted a little random thick-and-thin business going on. I think it's going to be a reverse-stockinette hat.
I really getting into this spinning thing this fall. The Lendrum hasn't been folded away in weeks! I may even hunt for a fleece at Maryland sheep and wool this year and send it away for processing.
