I Crave Your Opinions
Can you all help me make a decision?
My sister is a knitting fiend, and I want to make her some handspun yarn for her birthday. She likes rich colors and jewel tones. So I dyed this silk tussah last week....I don't have much, about 1.5 oz. I blended some of it with some dyed wool and Navajo plied it for a sample. The question is.....should I spin a blend, and end up with more of a sock yarn with a slightly more complex, heathered look, or should I keep the brilliance of the colors and spin the silk alone for a laceweight yarn?
I will be taking this project with me on a trip this weekend.....so please answer soon! :-)
