The year's spinning challenge is to spin a fiber with some kind of shiny material added or blended in. I decided to use the alpaca I was already spinning, and add angelica (similar to the tinsel you put on a Christmas tree, but finer). I added silver, gold, bronze and a blue metallic. I have a 3 ply, and have 8oz to knit with. I can either give away the yarn, or knit a project for a gift. I'm going for the gift, but not sure to who yet.
