Quality Time

This fiber and I have been spending a lot of quality and sometimes trying time together. In the basket is the remaining 8 oz. of Chameleon Colorworks Optim that I’m spinning for a knit night friend. The colors are gorgeous and lustrous since the fiber is processed Merino which acts more like silk than wool. Sometimes I feel like I’m trying to draft and control water flowing through my fingers instead of wool.

Once I spin up this last lace weight single, the plan is to chain ply the yarn for a self-striping fingering weight yarn. Yep, time for more quality time. Lots more.
