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