The brown yarn was great for making a work jersey for my husband, but it's a little boring for making accessories. I decided to bling it up a bit by combining it with gold thread. I bought the gold thread in Singapore, planning to tat with it, but it doesn't work well for that. I did tat with it as a ball thread, using a black size 20 thread on the shuttle, but the results weren't satisfactory. Even knitting with it is quite tricky, it's slippery and gets rapidly tied in knots, but I think it works better here than it did for tatting.
