I finally worked up the courage to take a go at spinning the amazing silk I bought from Briar Rose at Knitting Camp.
It’s matching my goal almost exactly. I’ve got very fine singles and when I let them curl back on each other I can see it’s going to be a nice shiny 2 ply yarn.
This is my pinkie finger. Now yes, I do have large hands, but still, I’m happy with this:
Of course it’ll take me ages to spin the super fine singles. I need to dedicate at least an hour a day this week to get through it and stay consistent. Hopefully the reminder that I want to show progress next week will keep me going!
