I love everything about silk, from how it becomes silk to how it feels, to the strength of it.  It’s delicate and tough at the same time.  I like that.  I particularly like this amazing gift from my friend Jennifer of dyed silk carrier rods which I have spun into several yarns.

Gone are the days of felted flowers and large hunks of things spun into the wool (just because I could).  Things are a bit more tempered now.  Like me?  Who knows, but the work is very evocative of the fibre it comes from —  resilient and precious.  I’ll only have a few of them for the show, but I will definitely be doing more work with silk.  I’ve also been able to incorporate dyed silk hankies into the carded batts as well.  A gift from another good friend.  Karen – how did you know?
