Spinning break achieved

After an EXTREMELY eventful day yesterday (the good kind, don't worry) and lots of work completed, I skeined this up this morning after plying it on Thursday night. The black is merino, the teal is bamboo, and the sparkles are called "firestar". I only had 3 oz and I spun it to a bulky weight (on my wheel, and did my first Navajo plying that was fun instead of swear-inducing), so it's not a lot of yardage but boy is it pretty. I think it would be good paired with a solid black merino, perhaps as cuffs on a pair of mittens or something like that? I don't know yet.
