Blue Moon BFL

Spinner: Rebecca
Fiber: 9.25 oz Blue Moon Blue Face Leicester in the color Rare Gem, purchased at Black Sheep Gathering in June 2006; spun March 1st thru March 4th, 2007, washed and hung out to dry without weights.
Project info: 8.6 oz, 2-plied for 650 yards at 12 wpi. I loved spinning this fiber; Blue Moon offers a BFL top that is everything it should be. Love the color, love the finished 2-ply, can't wait to knit it into a shawl and I'm sorry the spinning is over.

I think I'm going to have to stop reading your blog, what with all the tempting spinning fibers and the gorgeous final results!

Because I am not supposed to even be *thinking* about buying anymore fiber right now, yet my first thoughts after reading this post were, 'mmmm, must buy some Blue Moon BFL roving in Rare Gem...'

Don't ever tell me where you live. I'm tempted to come and steal your stuff. (and, having met me, you know just how evil I am *g*)

Um, that's my way of saying that's gorgeous.
