This week I've been trying to organize my upstairs craft room. I took the plunge and have thrown away a lot of wips and leftover yarns/fabrics that i was never going to use. it was kind of liberating, actually. My yarn stash is downright respectably manageable and my fiber stash is...well, it's a little bit smaller. I have all of my prepared fibers (already dyed, ready to spin) in a boot box. it's the fleeces that are still out of control.
anyway, i was able to make a tiny bit more room in the boot box by spinning up 2oz of tussah silk from gale's art. The last time I spun this fiber i was aiming for the thinest of thin yarns and it took me months to finish. I was not looking to repeat that experience.
This yarn is a fingering weight, 320yds/2oz. I spun it short-forward draw and plied it on a lower ratio to make it soft, drapey, and perfect for lace. I am in love with the sunny yellow color. it's really gorgeous. I think it would look beautiful as a lace scarf. The skein is in my shop.
I'm having a destash of some sewing patterns and craft books. A handful are out of print and hard to find. Prices don't include shipping. I will calculate actual shipping costs. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
