What's on My Wheel Wednesday: Art Yarn!

 I spun up a beautiful art batt from Neauveau Fiber Arts.  The batt is called Tinkerbell and it had lots of sparkle and some wool curls.  I spun it thick and thin, kind of however it wanted to be spun.  Then plied it with silver sparkly thread.  This was my first real art yarn I've spun and I think it turned out very pretty.  It is a bit over spun and I am hoping it will balance when I set the yarn.  What do you think of it?  Have you spun some art yarn?  I would love to see it.
