I have a thing for purple, and I have a thing for beads too. Now I think I even have a thing for silk and merino! This is a 3-ply fingering weight yarn, 1 strand of rayon thread, with 11/0 beads, two strands of merino and silk. This is a keeper, as the quality isn't too much to brag about. I think I'll make a lace shawl or something. Some day!
