Fiber: 50% BFL/50% Alpaca

Yardage/Weight: approximately a heavy sport/DK weight — hopefully by the time I am done I will have 2 pounds and about 2400 yards

From: I had a pound of a white Blue-faced Leicester and 1/2 pound each of an oatmeal colored alpaca and a brown alpaca. Ginger is carding them together for me and I am spinning them in order to make another Gathered Pullover.

Edited to add: Since I originally typed up this post (OMG! I pre-blog sometimes!) I’ve swatched this and it is definitely not going to work as my Gathered Pullover. While I’m getting exactly the gauge the pattern calls for, I don’t like the feel of the fabric; I want something more drapey. So I’m going to spin the rest of this up throughout the spring and summer, and knit a pullover out of it this winter.
