Tour de Fleece - day 4

After a nice soak and a read, I did crawl behind the spinning wheel last night... I had planned to use one of my spindles for my last remaining grams of silk, but alas... I remembered I had thrown them out in one of my clearing sessions. What a shame, I'll have to buy one of these soon then ;)
It only took me about half an hour, but I did end up with 2 (!) blisters. Silk is incredibly strong, and my skin is quite delicate, apparently... Still, the 7 grams of silk (5 or so hankies) was spun into 70 meters of silk yarn, which will probably be turned into a nice bracelet with sparkly beads and bangles. The creative juices are flowing...
And up close:

Tonight, Stitch 'n Bitch, WITH my wheel Loesje... See you there! I still have to decide what bag of roving to bring...
