mellow yellow

Help! I think I'm addicted to spinning beehive yarn! It's so much fun!

I learned how to do these fancy tricks at Yarn School (I even dyed some of this roving there, the more orange stuff was kettle-dyed at last year's Dye Day). My wheel is not loving the new techniques immensely (the orifice is a bit small and the hooks, oh, the hooks). But, no bother. I keep going and making the fun beehives.
I'm pleased as punch with this stuff. I really have no idea, though, what I'm going to make with it. Suggestions appreciated.

Yay, beehives and coils!

Yowza! I haven't been brave enough to try the beehives/coils yet, but it's definitely on my list.

As for what to do with I've got two ideas: hang it decoratively on your wall with a small plaque next to it or post it on Ebay and see exactly how much money you can get for it!

seafoam lace something-or-other?

Or, knit it v. loosely on 19s or larger???

I'm so impressed with your beehives -- I can never quite get the hang of it. You get a star!
