Funky Handspun

Yesterday I said that I could reward myself and do a fun skein of yarn and here it it. ↑ I spun a slubby, thick and thin from the roving posted yesterday but as I was spinning, I added pieces of shiney, brightly dyed mohair that I purchased from Cheryl at her cherylavenue Etsy shop. Then I threaded 140 little gold beads on beige Wooly Nylon thread and plied with it. I wish that the beads showed up in the picture...... I ended up with 160 yards which should be enough to knit or crochet some little thing....a skinny scarf or a funky hat.

You are such a creative spinner. Can I come and spin with you someday so you can teach me some of your tricks? (I'm not kidding either lol. I'm totally up for a road trip!)

Love this yarn! It's so bright, colorful, and cheery. It would make a hat that would get noticed!
