Despite being at home for the Tour de France this year, I didn’t go too crazy with the spinning for the Tour de Fleece. I didn’t officially participate on a team and I just didn’t have time to follow the myriad of posts. I did bring my wheel downstairs and found more time to spin.
I finished up the merino that had been on the wheel for months:
I did two skeins of Shetland, 2-ply, around fingering weight:
And this week I did the more ambitious skein. I spun some Southern Cross Fibre BFL very skinny onto four bobbins and turned it into approximately DK to sport weight yarn (about 300 yards in 97g).
The Tour de France Peloton KAL participants have all posted their results, and I’ll do the prize draws tomorrow (Tues. July 29th). That gives people a little time to vote for their favourite finishers and their favourite tale of woe (with the (love) button).
