I finished up my beaded yarn two nights ago, but did not get a chance to post yesterday.
This is 70% alpaca (from Ruben out of Snowshoe Farm Alpacas - see link in my sidebar) and 30% angora (from my bunny Bilbo Baggins). I spun a fairly fine 2-ply somwhere between DK and sport, and randomly added pale hues of silver-lined seed beads to one of the plys. I like the hand of this yarn - it's silky but fuzzy and soft, all at the same time. I think the drape would be great in a scarf.
And here's a closeup (click on the thumbnails to get them to open in a larger window) that better shows the yarn texture and the beads.
I have some other combinations I'm thinking about spinning up. A black alpaca with beads in shades from a peacock's tail. Pale gray alpaca and angora mixed with beads in grays and blues. Suggestions?
Last night, I fixed the cable issue on DH's sweater, so I'm back on track with that. I think I have 4 or 5 more rows to knit before I can put the stitches for the front neck on holders, so that's the plan for tonight.
Cool and rainy here today. I actually had the heat turn on last night for the first time in several weeks. Sounds like good fiber project weather to me!
