A week and a half ago, I ordered more fiber for spinning. I ordered it online because my semi-local LYS doesn’t tend to carry the quantities of fiber that I am looking for, and the only way to get BFL is through special order (apparently it sells out quickly whenever she gets it in, so if you want some, you have to order ahead. I really wanted some BFL, so I thought it would be easier and quicker to buy online rather than to wait for her to order and then drive the 45 mins to get to her store.

Then the company emailed to say that things were backordered, and I was fast running out of things to spin.

I have about a bobbin left to go on the sweater yarn, and probably could have gotten it done tonight if I hadn’t been distracted by other things. It was starting to look like I’d be scraping the bottom of the barrel, and I hadn’t heard anything from the fiber people.

As I walked home from the bus tonight, I saw the UPS truck outside. They left me a package:

It doesn’t look like much, but that’s two pounds of BFL for another sweater, two pounds of Corriedale for my next grand adventure (coming soon), and a half a pound of Finn because I’ve never tried it before (it’s gorgeous!).

I have some dyeing to do.
