IN LOVE WITH SILK


After being told that just because I could spin wool, that did not mean that I would be able to handle silk, I could not just let that one go and took up the challenge. I didn't buy the merino/silk from the woman that couldn't be bothered but from another. I met Ruth from the Dizzy Ewe at the dye retreat and got this lovely blue/gray from her. I only bought 16 ounces at that time not sure that I would be successful and have ended up loving it. I ordered 16 more ounces and she got it to me in record time along with some undyed merino/silk that I plan to dye this weekend. I love how this stuff feels and the lovely sheen it has and can hardly wait to compose my own colorway.

Wow - don't you love the votes of confidence from some people? I haven't gotten into spinning yet, nor dying my own yarn, so I'll live vicariously through you for the moment!

Have a great weekend!
