Behold, my sixty-sixth skein. It's a bit puny.
My digital scale is lying to me. I bought 4 ounces of Blue Face Leicester in the colour Long Time No Sea. I weighed it: 4 ounces. I weighed out an ounce and spun it, getting 102 yards. I weighed out another ounce and spun it into 128 yards. I began to suspect. I weighted out another ounce and spun 114 yards. I went to get the last ounce and somehow it only weighed a little over half an ounce. I spun 70 yards out of that.
I put some undyed BFL on the capricious scale and hit the metric/Imperial button. 28 grams. I took the fibre off and placed it back on the scale. 30 grams, for the same amount of fibre. This is not right.
Honest scales and balances are from the LORD; all the weights in the bag are of his making. Proverbs 16:11, NIV A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight. Proverbs 11:1 KJV
