I weighed my skeins. There's 7.4 ounces of Bluefaced Leicester here. You've asked me what my plans are for it and honestly, since it's for my stepdaugher Shazzy, I haven't given any thought to how I would use it. She has asked me to please give her some handspun yarn forever, and I'm sorry that it has taken me this long. She is a wonderfully talented artist. It will be a pleasure to see how she uses this.
I was grabbing up my stuff in a big hurry because I wanted to mail the yarn on my way to work. I just couldn't resist this picture and had to put everything down in order to have two hands. I love my little camera but sometimes it gets me in trouble. I emailed Shazzy to watch for her little package because mail delivery in a walk-up flat in San Francisco is not like mail delivery in Reno. I didn't spend hours on this to have it lost in the mail.
I'm so not happy with the current forecast and I hope it's wrong. These are the first of the clouds that cued up today and have consistently marched overhead to the east like a well disciplined army. The wind has been relentless. They say we'll have snow, beginning after midnight and then dumping on the valley floor by morning. Oh please be wrong. Please.
