More Beaded Yarn (Seabreeze)

A good friend gifted me with antique “Chec” beads she’d salvaged when she discarded an old lamp.  I strung the beads with small glass beads and plyed them to hand spun “Seabreeze” colorway, alpaca/wool blend fiber (the same fiber used in the handspun knitted shawl).

I then skeined the plyed yarn on the PVC skiener my husband built for me.  I steamed the skeined yarn using a “shark” hand held steamer.  When the yarn is dry, I’ll skein it and post the finished yarn.  Project for this yarn? Haven’t decided, but it will be something special.

Thank you for visiting

    That’s beautiful! I would think shawl but you are a much more creative thinker than me. I am definitely going to put beaded yarn in my queue for a project. Thanks!

    I’m thinking shawl too. Your Charlotte’s Web is AWESOME! I’m thinking something simpler for this yarn. Suggestions? Anyone.

    This is awesome!! Very pretty. I just found your site through your video on youtube then found that you are close to me and sell Mach 1s!! I am looking to try one out. I messaged you on etsy but then I saw this yarn and had to comment. :) Hope you are good.

    Don’t have any suggestions because I haven’t knit any good lace shawls yet but I’m interested in seeing what people suggest. Love the site by the way!

    Very nice yarn. It is so earthy and rich looking. It’s also very uniform.
