Apricot handspun

Just thought I'd post a pic of my latest handspun - it's spun from merino roving that I dyed here in my studio - love the way it turned out. There are 755 yards so I'm thinking of knitting a shawl with it.

Spent part of the day twisting fringes on tencel scarves, will be adding some beading to them next, will post some pictures once that's done. I've done lots of beading on scarves either by add beads onto the fringe and twisting them or by hemming the scarf and adding a fancy beaded fringe to them. But recently Susan, of the blog Thrums, showed her beaded fringes in which she beads in-between the twisted fringes, I'm thinking I'll give that a try on some of these scarves. Was thrilled to see yet another way to add sparkle to a scarf.
