These photos are a bit old at this point. They’re from two guild meetings ago. But that’s ok, I like them.
THREE meetings ago, I was finishing up my dissertation and so I couldn’t make it to the meeting. This was sad, as Michael Cook (Wormspit on Rav) was there. It would have been awesome to be there too.
Apparently there was something with the spare cocoons for reeling, so my friends who were there got their bags of cocoons at the next meeting, two meetings ago when I was there.
Fran (OhZoneKnits on Rav) let me play with one of her cocoons. It took me all of 15 seconds to start picking at it and drafting out from it. This is not how you’re supposed to reel off of cocoons. But what do you know… it works!
Worked well enough (with my highly skilled finger spinning) that I even plied a bit!
Must resist taking up yet another hobby I have no time for. La la la! But SILK!
Thanks to Fran for taking and sharing the photos!
