Glitterific

I have been spinning up a storm this week. Today, I am working on some sparkly batts from Butterfly Girl. It is 50% bamboo, 50% alpaca and a heavy dash of angelina sparkle. I have never worked from batts before so I just jumped in feet first like I normally do. Here is the batt:



Here is how it ended up looking on the bobbin:



And this is what ended up on my t-shirt.



There was pink and gold angelina bits everywhere. I think I had better ply this with some natural singles and bring the sparkle down a notch or two. Maybe I am supposed to wear an apron when spinning this disco yarn.
