Tour de Fleece

I’ve managed to spin every day since the beginning of the Tour on Saturday, which is my goal.

I’ve got a little left to spin and then I’ll ply them together. I am really curious as to what this will look like when finished. Did I add too much twist? Too little? How will I know? What will I knit with it?

I was starting to wonder if I was going to run out of the green/purple fibre my sister gave me with the spindles and so I spun less on Sunday and Monday. I knew I had a package in the mail with a little something for Tias and a little something for me, but I wasn’t sure when it would arrive. With Canada Day to slow the mail as well as a weekend, I doubted the timing estimate I’d been given. But it came promptly.

Korrigan in Black Annis (bfl) for me

Gaia’s Colours is a great shop. The prices are great, the service is personal and prompt, and the fibre feels like a dream.

Do I wonder if I should steal Tias’ fibre if he doesn’t start it soon? Yes. Bad Mama.
