The Tour de France starts today, which means so does the Tour de Fleece, whereby one sets whatever spinning challenges for oneself that one desires and the joining of a team for support is optional. This is my first Tour de Fleece, so I'm excited that I have such a fabulous group to spin with - Northbound Knitting.
I'm starting with a sweater's worth of this:
It's Lisa's superwash BFL in 'Purple Rain', 20 oz. I'll do a 2-ply sportweight, so that will take me awhile.
Then I'm out of town for a few days so I'm going to attempt to spindle spin this:
Again, from Lisa, it's Cheviot and called 'Violent Mood Swings'. I have no goals beyond making something vaguely resembling yarn, since my spindling skills are so poor.
Then I'll find something else to do if I still have time. Which I doubt will be an issue.
I should probably watch some of the cycling, too.
