Hand painted silk yarn will be on the website by this evening.

I have a new love in life:  painting silk yarn.  It's almost as fun as weaving those affinity bracelets.  I just ordered five kilos of silk from China which I hope arrives soon because I am all out of silk to paint.  On a grey, snowy day such as  today it would have been a fine way to pass the time.  But alas, no silk, no painting.

I seem to be drawn to this silk painting as if I have always done it.  It makes so much sense.  I wish I had figured this out years ago.  I can get so much more control than by immersion dyeing in a pot of water.

The results (and what will be on the website for sale for now):
