This is a doily I made out of leftover silk 2 ply yarn from my sisters wedding present. She was very surprised when I gave her the silk shawl right before her wedding ceremony.
This is supposed to be a string of hearts….yes I know they don’t -look- like hearts. I thought it was a good way to show off the silk sampler I spun up a couple years ago. It’s too big for a bookmark, and too small for a scarf and making it into a belt would be a waste. So its hanging in my spinning room.
Yes, this is some tussah that is sitting oh sooo lonesome waiting for me to finally finish the Shetland/Shetland blend and get started on the Patches Memory project. But it won’t be long as I am now done cleaning the drumcarder.
Time for fiber lovelyness. Here is some silk patiently waiting for me to spin it up. This is from The Silkworker I got a while back from Carol. I think the masses of Shetland was still being spun when I got this. Um….my name is Ellen and I have a stash problem….
Here is some tussah batts that I got from Castle Fibers on Etsy.com. Aren’t they pretty.
Okay, I confess, what is -really- on my main wheel is my Shetland/Shetland blend…sorry no silk in it. It’s my current spinning project for Productive Spinners. If you have trouble with starting stuff and never finishing the group can help you work beyond that. I’ve been a member for about three years now and it has made a big difference.
