Continuous bullion yarn

This is the wonderful second yarn for the Bendigo workshop. Not a great deal of yardage in this continuous bullion, but wonderful texture.

The only problem is that the core yarn gets too much twist and can break! Lots of interesting noises made then! It might pay to run the yarn through the wheel twice, so that I can ply back with the textured commercial boucle and finish with a fine black yarn.

I think I really need to knit a swatch with all these yarns. That would mean doing another set. I've wanted to with some dyed fleece. Way too much spinning.
