I spun bunny!
I asked jenny tonight what my 'adventure' for tonight would be - I ask her that quite often as I normally show up at class with no project in mind. Tonight's adventure was core spinning - which involved spinning some angora fluff around a core of polyester thread. It was fun, btu Idon't think I'll do it again. The angora made my nose and throat itch. I can still feel it. Ick.
The results, however, well, that's another story. So nice and soft - almost worth the itch! I think it will be nice for the cuffs of some baby mittens and booties. I'll have to think about that. It's gorgeous and soft and fluffy and.. oh, just beautiful.Silk Caps
I have just finished dyeing some silk caps. They will be in the Etsy shop soon - when they are dry and photographed. I love silk caps as they can be spun or knitted on their own. They make a nice contrast to wool or other fibres as they have a nice sheen. I also like that the handpainted ones have an unpredictable colour pattern, depending on where you punch the hole and how you draft it. Keeps me entertained for ages! Hang in there... they'll be in the shop soon.
