This is my challenge entry!!  I've used singles to show parts of me and plied them together to give a whole picture.  I love the colors purple,blue and pinks, and wear them often.   
There is a white and colorful/sparkle corespun single to show that.  It's also full of texure, because I love texture.
There is a black and colorful single that shows that I love to wear black too.  It's thick and thin.  Then there is a Hazel type single that I blended from a few different colors, to represent my eyes.  This one is steady, smooth and constant.
And there is the woolen spun single that represents my hair.  Which is naturally a mousy brown and a bit frizzy.  But I love to add color to it, so it has locks of purple spun into it.  (which I wish my hair had purple in it.... One day!)
And I auto wrapped it in my favorite color of time, Purple!
Oh!  And there's not much of it, because there's not much of me!!  Cheesy



Here are some terrible night time pictures of the singles I spun.  Just so you can see them alone, and point them out in the finished yarn.



So there you have it.  Me in Yarn form!

Very pretty and eclectic. It looks thick,  but I guess with 4 plies in there it would be, eh?

I love how you did the singles and then spun them together. 
Beautiful work.
