The Paradise Fibers monthly Fiber boxes are wonderful. I really enjoy playing with them. However, despite getting my box very early in the month, I have never managed to finish a ‘project’ with my box within that month. Really, I’m still working on spinning my Gemvember box from November, and my Yaktober fiber is still sitting in its pretty bag being admired. However for December we were sent three beautiful sets of 50/50 silk/something blends and two bags of very pretty beads. I decided, this is it. I am going to take the Polworth/Silk blend (since I really want to save the other two for very fine spinning) and finish a project in the same month that I received the box. Lo and Behold, my 128 Yards of Beaded Polworth Silk.
This is the pre-wash skein so the finished product is probably closer to 110 yards, however I am still very proud of it. I’m also sort of terrified of it…it’s so pretty and white…white doesn’t really last around me…but we will see.
