Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? A bag of drilled tiny shells. 4.2 oz of the blue fiber, the shop owner said it was merino superwash. 2.2 oz of the green fiber, again, shop keeper said it was merino superwash, though I'm inclined to believe that it is just normal wool.

What are you most proud of? That I managed to get the results that I had envisioned in my mind, even though this was my first beaded yarn. I am confident that more practice will give better results. (Also, I am proud of the fact that I managed to resist taking the yarn off the bobbin for almost 3 days instead of the 1 hour I was sooooo tempted to do.) I am also happy that I managed to spin a more bulky yarn than my natural inclination and that I was able to do this skein as a single rather than a 2 or 3-ply.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience and planning out what you want to achieve with your yarn is key. And if you're not sure how to do something = Research! And lots of it. Don't stop at just one reference, go and make sure that the information you find is consistant amongst folks. And if it doesn't make sense, email someone and ask. I am really glad I took the time to do so before I started spinning.
