I've no particular thing to show...
Ok.. well maybe one thing to show
sari silk skein
a close-up for those actually
interested in the yarn & not the kitty
Anyways.. about the sari silk. What a huge pain in the ass to spin! The fibers are all in a mishmash. You have to cut down the length & separate and it still comes out loopy! The stray strands keep getting caught on the hooks of my flyer & making a mess!
That said, the yarn is super fun! I think I have finally got the hang of spinning this stuff & can't wait to knit it up. (yes, I know I'm psycho)
As for knitting, I got another few rows done on the Cathay tank and several rounds done on the second Princess tank while at knit-in last night. And, I am really kicking myself for not bringing my camera, as there was so much loveliness! Elicia (sorry if I mis-spelled!!) brought the yummiest little vest she had made for her daughter out of an angora blend... I just wanted to cuddle up with it! Emily was wearing Grace, which she had finished last week, and was absolutely adorable! Jennie was working on her second beaded wrist-warmer, which simpley fascinates me. And, best of all, Ingrid brought her mum who is in from New Zealand! She knits even faster than her daughter & is frankly a fiber goddess! She was working on a gorgeous lace shawl made with a merino/possum blend that she had spun. Oh so pretty!
I think I need to find me an opossum...
