After months of not spinning, I restarted again, albeit very sporatically, after an invite to Jerry and Debbie’s home for some spinning. I had some crappy stuff that I was spinning just to get rid of it, but I really got bored of it, so Zona gave me some of her hand-dyed silk hankies to spin!
It’s my first time spinning silk and I’m really enjoying it! The concept of pulling the layers and strands of fibers from the hanky is a little strange since I’ve only pulled from commercial rovings and rolags that I combed. The downside is that the cap of my spool popped off, so I have to glue it back before I can resume.
My artist sister came to visit yesterday. We bond over many things and are close in age, however sadly, she does not knit, spin or is crafty in the way I am crafty. 😉
She’s a wonderful artist though and has designed and laid out many logos and publishing things for me though.
