4 oz of silk dyed as I have never dyed before and will hopefully never dye again. Lets just say that it is a good thing that silk will not felt and will take colour, colour, and more colour.
And I discovered that I don't mind spinning it on the drop spindle. I seem to have much more control. The splitting of the roving and the pre-drafting helped too.
I started my shawl yarn. Again. This time it is going to be just plain old white. Shocking, I know, from the queen of colour. Maybe I'll dye it all one colour when it is finished. Or maybe I won't. I need to get the fool thing knit first. Not to mention, the yarn spun.
The silver silk is going to get plied with it's self. Later. I have it all on one bobbin and while I don't mind plying from a center pull ball if the ball is small, I think that this would be a bit too big. Not to mention slippery. I don't want all of that beauty to end up as a tangled mess.
And I have plied the merino from a few days ago with its self. It is currently "resting" on the bobbin but I may have something to show you tomorrow or the next day. It will also give the camera batteries a chance to charge. Silly me.
Today was Nicole's last day of school. The class had a picnic at O'dell park and we parents were invited to join them mid-way thorough he morning. Everyone had a great time and there were many wonderful photo opportunities. Except for the fact that out of the 10 batteries that I had with me, none had enough charge left for me to take even one picture. Bill even asked if I had the batteries charged and ready to go and I waved away his concerns. Live and learn. In any case, I have a few great pictures in my mind. Unfortunately, those ones fade rather quickly now.
