I just finished reading Intertwined: The Art of Handspun Yarn, Modern Patterns, and Creative Spinning by Lexi Boeger of pluckyfluff and it is a wonderful, inspirational, gorgeous book. The author, Lexi, spins like she is a katamari, sticking anything from felted sushi to wire springs, shredded money, doll parts and hardware store detritus into her yarn.

The instructions warn the reader that you should have acquired the basics of yarn spinning on a wheel elsewhere and dive right into unconventional shenanigans.

The deadline for submission to be included in the 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse book by Gareth Johnson of ExtremeCraft.com has been extended to March 13, 2009. (via)
