Backwards dancing

This was one of the first skeins I ever spun, a rich unmixed blend of yak, tussah silk and...wool? Alpaca? I even forget the name I gave it. Neapolitan Melting? I do remember it being crazy soft and rather rope-like at the same time. So, of course, it was also one of the first skeins I sold. It seems to be a truism among knitters and spinners, maybe just makers in general, that finished product rarely stays with us. It's journey only begins in our hands.
