Remember?

Remember those gorgeous batts that I got from Beth at Blue Mountain Handcrafts?

Here is my finished yarn. I love this yarn!!! I plied the single with a gold thread. I ended up with 420 yards of sport/fingering weight yarn. I'm thinking that I'll go with sport weight for pattern searching since it is a thick/thin yarn.
I am thinking shrug... something that I'll use often. I am also thinking of spinning up some brown, plying it with the gold thread & using that with this. Maybe some brown ribbing & this gorgeous multi-color as my main color. Maybe something like this Bolero with Lacy Sleeves (Ravelry Link). We will see...

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Any chance you could post a tutorial for plying with thread like that? It turned out gorgeous and I think that method would work great with some fiber I have. :-)

Wow. I think I know what I want for my birthday... Some sparkly fiber. You know the colors I love. I wore that lovely pink wrap this year, so I need something to top it for next year's casino night...
