Core-Spining Kick + Bauble Yarn

as you all know, I'm on a crazy core spinning kick. so naturally, I dug out the drum carder and threw some fiber in.

no picture of the batt cause I was far too excited to spin it up.
grey mill ends, orange cormo (both processed and dyed by moi), and pepto bismol pink cotton for texture.

this is actually two yarns. one was spun from "tequila beach" batts (thanks lapoli!) with ribbon add-ins. the other was spun from a roving I pulled on my hackle sometime ago.

I had a hard time photographing this puppy. the colors blend from a purplish blue, to navy blue, to green.
shetland, with stripes of hand painted green bamboo.

this yarn was a learning experience. I learned that I'm not too fond of icelandic wool. I learned that when I watch a tutorial video, it wouldn't hurt to actually follow the advice they give, as they probably know a thing or two about the certain technique they're explaining.
