Tomorrow is another day

No knitting has occurred chez moi.

The yarn for my mittens is dry. With any luck at all I can finish at least one pair of mittens this weekend. Of course that is what I said last week.

I have decided to attempt reeling silk. I have ordered cocoons and begun a list of necessary equipment. I have found a partner in crime. I am all set! Now we just have to get our supplies together and find a day we are both available.

I have learned through my research that reeling results in a certain amount of reeled silk and a roughly equivalent quantity of spinning silk. I think I will attempt to dye it, mix it with wool and spin it for either embroidery or knitting. In my copious free time.

And this is why I get so little done.
