It looks like something that should go into the compost pile, or has been pulled out of the compost pile. Ick.
So I turned to making a beaded yarn. I actually don't mind the color combination on this one. This was obviously a first attempt, so it didn't turn out so good.
The thing is, my sister really isn't a beaded yarn kind of person. Me either. I do appreciate an understated beaded fringe on a scarf or shawl though. If I thought the beads would really float her boat, I might find the patience needed to practice more and do it properly. But it wouldn't, so I won't.
I don't think I'm a novelty yarn kind of person either. Thick n thin is fine. Yarn with all kinds of stuff sticking out of it, not so much.
