Oh my....I am in complete awe...that is some gorgeous silk hankies you've got yourself there and really looking forward to see it spun up.
Little Dudette, you completely rock!

This is beautiful fibre! Can't wait to see what it looks like all spun. :0)

Caroline said...

You really are trying to tempt me back to knitting aren't you... I could imagine wearing that...

Kim said...

Stop! Stop! Stop! The last thing I need is another hobby! Those two articles and then your 2 cents (sorry, pence) :) on top of them are very tempting. No, I will resist!

Kath said...

I see you've been reading Spin Off as well! They do have some great nuggets of info in that. A friend loaned me her back issues and I was very lothe to return them!!

Kath said...

Oh I should have added that it's good to hear it's not quite as scary as it might seem at first!

Ms. Knitingale said...

Oh, I just watched someone doing that at the PJ party at Village Yarn and Tea. I am no less in awe now. Marianne's right--you DO rock!

Artis-Anne said...

oooh...I am so excited...but very cross with you! You have now cost me a lot of money! I am so excited about learning to spin these pretty little hankies. I have some KoolAid to dye some with too...so any hobbies, so little time! I sat and read both those tutorials, an inspiration!

Jill said...

Very cool....So I tried out a spinning wheel the other day. And now I want one. I'm no good at it so far. But I think I definatly have potential!

I'm speechless. Those jewel like colours, the yarn possibilities...
I'll wait to see what you do NEXT.

You have been spinning some lovely yarns Jo!

Silk is wonderful stuff to spin and the hankies are the easiest to work with, though top is smoother in my experience. (I wrote about it in my Saturday, September 16, 2006 blog) Course, I've only used a spindle.

Enjoy the silk!
