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.

The storm is coming your way. Just passed over my house with a crash, bang, lots of rain and then gone!

Getting your storm soon here too!

Is this from the roving you bought from Mim? I love the mutted colors! It turned out really nice!

Beautiful yarn. I am unhappy that my horse barn stopped blanketing April 1. I hope Casey isn't shivering!

Beautiful yarn!!! I'm sure your stepdaughter will love it.
Your picture of the moutains with the clouds over head is amazing. Hope the clouds don't bring you more snow.

Your BFL yarn is gorgeous. I love the colors, and you've got a really nice twist in it too.

Enjoy the snow!
