Back in September, I visited the Belfast Mini-Mills in Prince Edward Island and purchased some silk/alpaca/merino/qiviut roving in blues and purples with some 'bling' in it called "Evening Sparkle".
Monday night spinning. A couple of nights ago I finished spinning the singles and started plying (2 ply) and finished plying later that evening. I wound it into a skein with my niddy noddy, gave it a nice bath, rolled it in a towel, 'whacked' it a few times and hung the skein to dry.
Ta da! 480 yards of 'sparkle'.
With stretchy, 'magic' gloves.
I'm not that keen on the bindoff with the white yarn around the top. Next pair, I'll do a complete Latvian braid and a loose bindoff with the contrasting colour.
I could have mirrored the chevron on the cuff - oops!
