Yes, yes I think that’ll do quite nicely

I was going to do another half diamond but I think I’ll call it good.

Yarn: laceweight teal-blue silk from Colourmart that I asked them to ply for me, 2×3 strands together for a 6-ply of it. (You order that at checkout, $5.) It came out a little thicker than I expected, more like a worsted-weight wool would be, but that just means it knitted up all the faster. I have 74 grams left out of the 150.

It does need to be washed because of the mill oils, unlike a store-bought yarn, so how much stretching of the lace vs shrinking of the silk–it’s all an adventure from here.

I think I’ll go cast off and call it done.

That’s lovely! I look forward to the report on how it does in the washing.

I, too, am curious to learn how the rest of the process will go.

Now, what colour will you knit next? 🙂
