Edited to add:

The final story of this yarn, was not to be knitted.
The next pair of hands it landed into, took the yarn and made hair falls out of it.
Here are the pictures (yes she has given me permission)







So I had a request for some art yarn from an online friend in the UK
The theme she wanted was "Cyber trash"
"With colors like green / yellow / black .... maybe some torn fishnet stockings"

Well I managed to give Cyber-trash yarn her fishnets and a whole lot more Wink
Here she is!


Some of her features:
fishnets, fuzzies, angelina fibers, glitter fibers, glow-in-the-dark candi, UV reactant netting


Quite a voluptuous yarn Wink

Ahahaha
boys are funny when it comes to craft.

Yeah, it will actually be knitted up. You just need massive needles to do it.
After measuring, I think you'd need 15mm needles to knit this one.
Maybe larger....
Art yarn looks totally awesome knit up though.

and here's an art yarn I knitted in more my own style (I didn't spin it though)

It's art yarn that makes me want to take up knitting. Even if I only ever made really simple knitted scarves they'd look damn fucking cool in a yarn like this...

hmmmm.. learn something new every day! i didn't even know you could get different sized knitting needles. i love the effect the art yarn gives, i have seen items made like that before but didn't realise it was yarn at all. thanks for getting back to me anyway i'm free from confusion now! haha!
