Tweedy yarn

I'm trying something new.  I've got some brown alpaca that I've carded up with bits and pieces of blue and green cotton.  I'm spinning it up so the cotton bits get caught at irregular intervals.  It's looking pretty interesting right now.

The best part is, I'll be able to repeat this for as long as I've got alpaca left over.  :)  What I don't know is whether I'll be spinning this to weave into a blanket, or knitting it up into a tweed vest, or even knitting an irish sweater out of it.

I'm leaning towards the last one, just because that would be an interesting project and this is a very interesting yarn.
