I?ve been working away on my little piles of silk and satin angora... trying to at least spin a handful each day of one or the other. It feels most days like I don?t get much accomplished, but as you can see, the spindles are filling up over time. I have a previous cop of the angora (top) already wound off onto a cardboard tube waiting for enough silk (bottom) to pair it up with. And I also did a cop of each and made a plying ball (below) so I can keep on knitting when I have time.
I can?t get over the shine from this thread. ( I keep wanting to call it yarn... but quite honestly, it?s too fine to ever be called a yarn) Even though this little plying ball looks tiny... when the winding was complete, there was 185 yards therein!
The colors really do match perfectly too :)
