Although it’s not like I had a dearth of spinning projects before Rhinebeck, I couldn’t resist starting one of my brand new fibers when I got home.  All of my spinning time for the last week went into this ball of singles.



I told DivineBird Jenny that I picked this fiber because it was the only one that wasn’t in any wrapping.  There’s some truth in that, but it didn’t hurt that it was absolutely wonderful fiber: 50/50 baby camel/tussah silk, from Spirit Trail Fiberworks.  I had a wonderful time spinning it into fine singles.  (But it’s sort of a shock, how much time can go into spinning a little over 2 ounces…)  I’m going to spin some other stuff first, but I’m really looking forward to seeing how it looks when it’s plied and skeined.
