Silk Spinning Update

Still spinning silk for the Boukolos bracelets for the thiasos of the Starry Bull.These are meant to be twined black, white and red silk, for the priests.

I’ve got enough of the black and white, but don’t yet have a red I’m happy with the start spinning. But I am enjoying making little cocoons of different colors on the spindle shaft. Once I get a red I’m happy with, I’ll get that spun up, and then can do the bracelets. PHEW, these are more work than I realized. Totally worth it, though. Tonight I’ve been writing the rest of the incantation for spinning them. Just one more verse to go.
