Finish something today!
I thought about my projects, guessed that I would not finish socks or lace today, and decided that Thursdays really are for spinning. I’ve been spinning up this chameleon colorworks optim in colorway veridian. I wanted laceweight singles. I think optim deserves a little explination. Optim is merino which has been mechanically stretched. It is soft, and it has a drape and shine similar to silk. It won’t felt and it spins more like silk than merino. A lot of predrafting was necessary for this. I can’t even tell you my yardage as I was so eager to get it done I took pictures and then sent it to its bath before counting.
Finishing helped me avoid casting on. For that I am thankful!
