TdF Day 2

The little irony from Day 1:

1. I really need more practice to get good at spinning silk.

2. I did not enjoy spinning silk well enough to get more practice.

I don’t think I shall be continuing the silk caps for this year’s TdF. Or if at all. I spin because it’s fun and relaxing and that little blue hank there was neither fun nor relaxing to make. So, onwards.

Also for today, here is that yarn I was working on the day the movers came to load our stuff.

I’m rather a bit happier with this one, I must say. Both hanks need a wash and set before they are well and truly “finished”. But for now they are close enough.

Today I hope to finish the Alpaca from the Martha’s Vineyard trip a couple of years ago, and possibly I will ply up the silk/qiviut blend which has been taking up one of my bobbins for a while now.
