Blue Faced Leicester

But plying is waiting for me...

I've spun 200g of Blue Faced Leicester top. Started on 27th March, it took me two months to finish. Well, though I also spun other fiber, it took too long. The thickness of the yarn is quite different from the start and the end.
Still, I got improved so much from spinning BFL. The yarn thickness are getting constant and I can spin more than used to. The fiber was in good condition, that's why.
Now, I'm trying hard on spinning the yarn with constant twist. The yarn I spun has strong twist in some part and weak twist in other part. I'm not sure how I can achieve that goal, but anyway, I'd give it a go.

And I've already bought another 200g of BFL top (200g is a little more than 7 oz. by the way). I'm thinking of spinning it finer and knit some lace.



  • I hope you're feeling better now with a couple days of rest.

    The spinning is coming along nicely. Isn't BFL pleasant to work with? Next you'll be wanting to spin silk for your tatting. :-)

  • Thank you very much for your kind comment. I'm getting better now.
    And, yes, BFL's just taken my heart away somehwere.
    I gave it a try and spun some silk. I have a long way to go to tat my handspun silk right now.
