I reached the end of spinning the singles from the dyed silk hankies yesterday and they are ready to ply. But I’ve had the purple silk/merino blend waiting to be plied since around Christmas and thought it was high time I did so. Especially as some of it has been waiting a long time (eek! nearly a year!). So as incentive (since I’m keen to see how the silk turned out), I’ve plied the silk/merino first.
The first skein was plied yesterday, and a second and a small third one were plied this morning. I keep looking at it thinking “wow” and “why the heck didn’t I do it sooner?”.
Next up, the silk. And the first jaywalker sock should be done soon too.
