spinning silk

I went to Mary's house today for a "spin-in" hosted by Mary and Kristi Cookie, Janice, Margit, Jeni and Grace (who probably has a blog, but I don't know what it is) were also there. I spun some of my silk hankie today, following the Knitty instructions. Kristi also let me try to spin some of the corn fiber I bought on her wheel. That was actually not fun. I assumed that once I sat down at the wheel, I would want one. I was wrong. Of course, I don't think it had much to do with the wheel and probably more to do with the corn fiber. That corn fiber might have to wait a while to be spun. The silk hankie is going fairly well and I have a feeling the soy silk that I have will also be easier than the corn.

Mary asked what I am going to make with it. I told her that it is what I am making: yarn!
