I started playing with some silk caps this weekend. I got some from The Silkworker around Christmas time (she doesn't normally carry them), but hadn't done more than Oooh and Ahhh over them. There's a really great article on how to spin silk hankies from Knitty a while back that was like a lightbulb for me for spinning these. I knew people did it, and I loved how hankies and caps (they are essentially the same thing, just different shapes) looked, but I didn't know how to spin them or even prepare them for spinning until I read the article. Doing the predrafting for the caps is great TV time and then spinning goes really fast. The colors aren't showing up really well in the photo, but these caps are blue, teal, and a cinnamon brown with a tiny bit of pinky purples. The yarn you get with silk caps is more textured than what you'd get with silk top but I think it will be really interesting once its finished.
