What I'm spinning Wednesday: Undyed Blue-faced Leicester

A hank of undyed blue-faced leicester on a sea of buttons with a backdrop of green sari silk, next to a pair of knitting needles. It was going to be a photo outside, but it has been RAINING for DAYS.

I *may* have gotten a pound of undyed BFL from a local farm in Virginia. I may also have gotten a pound of merino and a pound of Finnsheep.

Do you blame me?

They, um, kind of take up a lot of room, so I’ve been spinning like Rumpelstiltskin (is that a phrase? I have decided it is now) to try to make them into nice compact hanks of yarn. Um, yeah, at least that’s what I tell the others in my housemates.

Really, I just can’t stop touching the super-soft blue-faced leicester.

Here’s a pic of 79 yards of it. Luscious.

*.* Beautiful. My sister-in-law is big into knitting, felting, etc. and I think she'd be interested in your crafting DW. Would you object if I sent her the link?
