Tour de Fleece 2010 - hot day today

Summer arrived today. Eeek. I don't like it so hot and it's only going to get hotter.

I finished my first bobbin of Shetland singles. It averages 35 wpi (wraps per inch) and one bobbin (edit: worth) weighs 150g.

Do you think I could weave it at a set of 15epi at a balanced weave?

Even though I've finished my silk tatting thread, I am still playing with silk. This time with my spindle in a park and draft kind of way to see if I can perfect the silk thread thing. Too hot to say more. Going to go drink homemade ice tea.
