This is the second of five skeins of Bluefaced Leicester for the handspun shawl that I am planning. I love the rich browns and green highlights in this skein. I think it spun up very nice; I like the color distribution I got. The roving is from the same dyer and was very nice to handle.
I've been trying to decide what shawl to knit. I've seen several nice versions of the Feather and Fan Comfort Shawl that were knit in handspun. I'm just not really crazy about the triangular shape. I've also thought about trying a Lady Eleanor, but I'm not sure how to work all the color changes. And, I have silk garden stashed away for a Lady Eleanor - but I could always do something else with that. So the pattern is still up in the air. Besides, I've got three more skeins to go, all kinds of things can happen between now and then.
