Silk = Happiness

My very first project since mailing in my book for grading is to spin 4.2oz of silk.  imag1135.jpg

I bought this silk two summers ago at the Salida Fiber fest from Dragon Faery Dyeworks.  This is the first chance I have had to spin it up.  I am spinning it rather fine.  Then I am hoping to chain ply it to maintain the color repeats.


Seriously, is it not luscious.  100% Bombyx Top!  In Purples!!!!!  This is destined to become a lace shawl with beads.  Knitting it might just be a bit over the top.  I don’t think I have knit anything other than swatches with 100% silk.

One more pic… just because…


Silent girly scream….
