The Spinning Project That Won't End

I'm keen on finishing this spinning project this week -- I've been working on it since early October (of course, I was out of the country for most of that month!). Sometimes I get so mesmerized by spinning singles that I'm not paying attention to how much I've spun before I start to ply it. In this case, I've already got 2000 finished 2-ply yards of this lustrous stuff, spun from silk caps. And although I usually dye silk hankies and caps before spinning, occasionally I spin it white to dye later. This yarn will likely end up as part of a woven shibori piece, or I'll paint it as warp and then weave with it.
