I grabbed this roving from ebay, the color the dyer called it was partygirl Smiley not sure if it'll stick or not Wink.

I was too impatient to wait and find some black fire star to mix in with it, but I do have some black cotton thread remnants. I started to spin the 4 oz with the black cotton thread sporadically added (I'm hoping in the long run it will add to the fun factor and can I get a yay for texture??) Wink we'll see...

As always I would love your feedback - should I go back and pull out the black or keep going and add it?  Talk to me

I know absolutely nothing about spinning yarn, but I do know those colors are cute! Luv the black just kinda interspersed into it.

I love the addition of the thread.  If you choose to not spin it with the yarn you can always ply with it.  Or get it to wrap around the yarn for even more texture!

oohhh - you said two ply! Cheesy I may have to experiment!

though, can I just say as much fun as the process to spin up the yarn is, I want it to be done already Smiley so I can see the finished project... patience is a virtue indeed Cheesy

I'm liking it.  Also like Bella's idea about plying.

Perhaps you can find a sparkly black thread to ply it with??

Love the colors! I agree you should ply with sparkly black thread, it would look great! Smiley I love plying with thread, I'm sort of obsessed with it! Haha
