Garments and Gadgets merino in Manganese. I spun about 70g of it and two-plied it. Then I threaded up a silver thread with tiny beads, and spun it around.

See the beads? They're only tiny, and my phone camera is a bit dodgy with close-ups.

I suppose there are about 200 beads on there. The silver thread was a pain in the neck, not coming off the reel well, and not sticking to the wool at all. But this is 'art' yarn for Astronomy, and I think it is very fitting. Hehe.

Lovely! Can't wait to see what you do with it next!

Yeah doesn't sound like a fun spin. I couldn't be bothered threading all those beads on either. Nice work for your assignment though.
