My “Road of Trials” yarn for The Golden Fleece Module 2 was surprisingly very enjoyable to make. I decided for this that I would do a bumpy textured yarn to represent the bumps in the road that I’ve encountered along my journey - missed opportunities, self-doubt, and rejection among them.
I core spun and then coiled the yarn from an art batt that I hand carded. It’s wool with a bit of Angelina to add some tiny sparkles and bright points in the darker parts of the yarn. I liked the simple corespun which was much smoother. At first I almost kept it that way, but I gave the super coils a try to see what would happen when I added all the “bumps”. What I discovered is that I really loved the texture of the coils and they added a whole new dimension to the yarn. Without all the bumps it would be pretty simple and although nice, a bit boring - just like my journey so far.
I was really digging all the fuzzy squishiness so I chained a piece to wear as a necklace using a jumbo crochet hook.
