I just finished spinning an ounce of Optim and I dyed it using cake frosting dye:

There's about 212 yards and it's lace weight. I love the way it turned out so I have to use it. Ideas? Suggestions?

That is sooooo beautiful!
I am still spinning pretty bulky (using a drop spindle though, and still fairly new). I would love to be able to spin like that. It would be a lovely scarf.

Take care!

That is amazingly beautiful, did you use one colour and it separated or three different ones?
I think it would make a pretty lace cuff for gloves/sleeves, decorative belt, thin mobius neck wrap, head wrap...

Lovely color. You could make a scarf or perhaps a pillow cover.

Monkachia - I used violet cake frosting dye and it separated out on its own. I didn't lift a finger to make it all purty...how cool is that?

Thanks for all your suggestions! I'm still thinking about what to knit. Eventually, I'll make up my mind. *grin*

What would chairs look like if our knees bent the other way?

That is lovely yarn . I think I'd make something that I'd use daily. A small coin purse or phone cozy.
