Today I did some spinning. I invested in Judith MacKenzie's DVD Spinning Luxury Fibers in the attempt to wrangle this silk buisness. It's very educational, and without her I would not have made ANY progress... that being said....
As some of you know, patience is a virtue that I was not blessed with. I am a PRODUCT crafter. I like to see things get DONE. In a quick-like fashion, preferably. So I wasn't real keen on my hand spindle for spinning up this silk.
Thus, I switched it over to my spinning wheel. It's lovely, yes?
Two hours, several swear words, and a small pile of fluffy rejected pieces later....
I've spun 2 grams.
How much is left to spin, you ask?
Oh, just a smidgen. You know. 21 more grams.
This is going to take the rest of my life.
