Hip Deep in Slow Projects

Progress is being made. The progress is not very photogenic, however. I'm still spinning silk, still weaving row by row on Peter's rug, and now also dyeing silk everyday.

I started with this:

silk top

Six pounds of bombyx top. Unfortunately, it's not for me, it's class supplies. It will become more of this:

dyed silk top

but at one dye run a day, it will take a few weeks.

Back to the salt mines.

Wow! That's a whole lot of gleaming silk. I love what you've done so far. What class is this for?

Wow, that's a lot of silk. What does it look like close up? Does it look ike wool roving or already spun yarn?
