Chocolate Covered Cherry

This skein I'm calling chocolate covered cherry.  It's 350 yards of a red merino wool single plied with brown #10 crochet cotton.  I would call it DK weight, but again I can't be bothered with wpi.  I pre-strung red beads on the cotton strand and slid one up to get tangled in place at semi-random intervals.  The key takeaway from my experience on this one was to re wind the cotton thread on a bobbin before plying instead of working off the spool.  It was a pain in the arse trying to yank off lengths while the spool flailed wildly about.
