Measuring up perfectly

Not having any scales accurate enough to weigh just one gram, or parts of a gram, I was very proud to have successfully wound exactly ten parcels of one gram of silk.

I found some similar yarn in a catalogue, which had its weight given as 100g measuring 1000m. So I wound off 10m on my warping mill and lo and behold, my 36 lengths weighed 36g!!!

For the dye powder I used some kitchen measuring spoons and followed the instructions which came with the dye. As long as I always use the same measures I should be able to repeat the colours.
