On our Ravelry group, Britt (aka Bohoknitterchic) was just mentioning that it’s about that time of year when, despite the warm temperatures outdoors, knitters start thinking ahead to the coming cold seasons and begin to plan their sweater projects. She must be right, because no sooner had she spoken when a bountiful shipment of Big Blue, Fleece Artist’s super bulky 100% Blue Face Leicester yarn, arrived at our door.
With it came some news you’ll want to hear: Right now there is a high demand worldwide for BFL fiber (understandably, given how wonderful it is). This has resulted in a slowdown at the mill which is delaying shipments of BFL yarn to Fleece Artist (they expect more to arrive late September/early October). Additionally, the demand has pushed the price up just a bit. When the next shipments arrive, the price of Big Blue will be $24.95, not the current $19.95. So, if you’re wanting to make the snuggliest sweater ever, or the warmest, cuddliest blanket, now is the time to bring home the Big Blue you’ve had your eye on, here.
