Great post on silk spinning! 08:59 am
Here's a terrific post on spinning silk. She gives a quick overview of the types of prep commonly found, what to look for, and how-to's.

Let's see - I broke the printer network at the office. Our computer guru can't figure out what happened, so HE called HIS guru, who will be in tomorrow.

When *I* break something, I do it right! (And actually, I didn't do anything. I think the anti-virus software I updated yesterday did something; I was printing just fine, then I downloaded the new version, and the printer was gone.)

Got a measuring wheel (finally!) yesterday, and spent about 30 minutes tonight turning it into a yardage meter. It seems pretty accurate; I skeined off my novelty yarn that will be posted for sale soon; the meter read 97.2 yards, I calculated 95.1 (not counting the loose ends - I, err, umm, just started counting wraps on the top of the clock reel. Bad me!)

Also got my photo tent - Huzzah! I'll be setting it up this weekend and taking lots of pictures. Some will go on the sale page, the rest will just replace the (crappy) ones that are there now.

Ranting ahoy. You've been warned!Collapse )

OK, *that's* out of my system. I'm working on a post on spinning and selling the output, but it's going to take some time for me to formulate things coherently. Meanwhile, I need to go spin! I've got some Emerald Green superwash Merino on tap, and it's calling.
