I needed to…

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!
