For Auld Lang Syne

After not having touched any cotton fibre for nearly two years, I definitely needed to give it another try, now that I have a better wheel and much more experience. It's still far more difficult to spin than any other fibre I've tried so far and it's very time-consuming work, but it was worth it. I've spun it thick and thin and then plied it in a wavy fashion, using a sparkly mother-of-pearl thread strung with bronze-golden freshwater pearls.

It's only a small skein of 49 m, but I think it would make a wonderful piece, such as a neck cuff.

My husband says it has a vintage look and I think he's right, hence the name :-) By the way: I love that song!
