What should Gwen spin next?

So, I've been an absentee blogger recently. I've been busy working. Our busy season came early this year. There has been lots of spinning. I spun up this beautiful yarn. I bought the roving at Maryland Sheep & wool last year. It's called party roving and has a little bit of everything under the sun.

The way the roving was, it had to be kind of spun from a cloud by picking up bunches and spinning. It was kind of fun. I knit it into a scarf, but that's another post.

I also spun up this. It's about 2.5 oz of 20oz of green wool. It's navajo plied and a light worsted weight. I'm hoping to have enough to make the Veste Evereste by Veronik Avery. It has been on my queue.
I'm halfway through the second bobbin of this. I alternate a bobbin of this with something more fun. Something for fun was some pink/white fluff I bought this weekend at the Uniquities fiber market.
Since I'm almost finished with the second bobbin of the green, I'm already thinking about what I could spin next. Hmmm...

First option if this BFL from Wild Hare fibers in the Tidewater colorway. It's beautiful and I have never spun BFL before.

Next is more BFL from Wild Hare, this time in the greene-eyed tabby colorway. I love, love, love this.

And finally, a roving that I've had for 2 years that I purchased at the Pittsburgh Knitting and Crochet festival in 2009 from Firelizard studies. It's just so pretty.
So, if I have any readers left, what should I spin next???

    I was going to vote for Firelizard, but it looks like I'm outvoted already! :) I'm sure it will all be beautiful and I can't wait to see it! 5 weeks to Stitches!!!

    Way cool with all your spinning. Even though I'm way outvoted, I say the green-eyed tabby. I love the drastic color variations! No matter what, you're still working with BFL.

    Glad you're back...I missed you!
