|BFL Sport in Bittersweet|
I ordered and received my yarn for the project and having not knit with Blue Moon Fiber Arts before, I'm excited to try out a new yarn. The pattern recommends their Socks That Rock yarn but an alternate yarn is their sport weight which, in my size, ended up being a bit more economical. I chose a tonal reddish-brown, and my two skeins arrived within days of my placing the order. The color is a bit duller than I thought it would be, but I'm confident it'll be beautiful knit up.
I caked my yarn over the weekend which was kind of a hoot because the cakes flew off my winder once they passed the halfway point of the skein. Did I mention that each skein of the Blue Face Leiscester is 661 yards!! I couldn't put the darn things back on the spool so had to hand-wind the rest.
I got out my needles, cast on, and swatched. And guess what? I got gauge! Woo hoo ... let's hope that really translates into knitting a cardigan that properly fits. Now I'm just waiting for the first part of the pattern to be released. Wish me luck!
