I have my hands full, we had puppies recently, well miss Lola did… pics
I’ve managed to squeeze in a bit of crochet and a bit of spinning. These are silk hankies, I offer them in the shop, but boy, they go fast!
The hankies were bit challenging at first, I haven’t worked with anything with such a looong staple. I imagine they u be a delight to spin on a drop spindle. You can go thin very easily and the resulting yarn is really strong, with a lovely sheen, but bouncier than your mill-spun silk, which I prefer. The yarn got much more even towards the end of the bobbin.
I spun the scruffy top and bottom layers of the stacks that I sold at the shop, I tried to do a bit of a gradient, but I wound it into a ball, and I don’t think that has happened.
Then I made a small pincushion,. I want to make one for a friend, so this is a prototype, I stuffed it with bits of yarn (yes, I squirrel away bits of yarn, they come in handy). Uneven picots, puffs too flat, dislike.
Hope you enjoyed Easter!
