wool & silk onion skin yarns
The wool yarn up there is for more hexies for the beekeeper's quilt project. I'm hoping to use all bee and honey colors with a touch of light blue for the sky. And our bee hive is painted light blue, too. The plain mini-hank has already been washed and rinsed. I hope so badly that the others keep their variations, am scared to wash them!
Okay, technically I don't think I can call this silk yarn but it sort of is. The onion skin silk organza curtain made almost 20 yards of yarn. You just snip and tear, side to side, making sure not to tear all the way through. Happily there's another whole curtain panel to do yet, that'll make about 40 yards!
I'm waiting for the cable man as we're consolidating our phone, cable and internet today. That means being able to get rid of the phone line hanging across the middle of our back yard so I'm willing to risk it. Keeping my fingers crossed that it all goes smoothly.
Happy weekending! xo
