I love green, on trees, in the garden, tasty spreads of sheep pasture but......
I don't know what to do with green, how to work with it, how to make it sing - and go ping - how to make it vibrate the way a red can vibrate when I put it next to ...... whatever my whim dictates in that instance.
For now I will tell you that ... as any good horder I found ....... something green, which initially thrilled me because it was a beautiful pile of many shades of beautiful green, couldn't really ask for too much more in that department.
The thing is, a dear friend of mine had given me four x 50grs of silk for christmas, 200 grs of silk, two in green hues and a blue and a red one. The silk came from her mother's stash. As it happens, Jali passed away a couple of years ago and her daughter was gifting me a few little tidbits from her beloved mother's treasure box.
The green/yellow/blue silk and the green wool from my stash seemed to me to swing just fine, and so I started to spin. One can spin for many hours - I at least take a pile of time when the yarn is fairly fine, not cob web mind you, but, not on the heavy side at all. 1 strand of wool and one strand of silk.
Phew, in my eyes it seems they did, so I can continue spinning - the half spool of silk had about 200 meters on it and so my first little 'sample' skein is 200 meters. Which means I have another 6-800 meters of silk to spin on top of the wool (app. 1000 meters = 1km) which is already done. I love spinning - good thing now, isn't it =-)
ps time will tell how it all looks when it gets woven up, but I am hoping for beautiful.
