Rock Star Slub
So I got this bat from a fellow Etisan and I wasn't sure that I was keen on the colorway. I like all the colors separately, red - black - purple, but I wasn't sure how I felt about them all together until I spun this up.
What I like so much is how each color shows the twist of the yarn. Also the bits of razzy sparkle are fun too. Also, it seemed this yarn was perfect for making "slubs". For those who don't spin, "slubs" are the artistic bumps that spinners like to put in funky or art yarns. I find that slubs give a great texture when knitting.
So yes, this is my Rock Star Hand Spun Yarn... what do you think?
