I’m back for my 5th Tour de Fleece!
In short, it’s a spinning event where you spin each of the days the cyclists cycle the Tour de France. Details are on Ravelry in the Tour de Fleece group.
This year I’m a member of our Guild’s team, our team name is Highland Treadlers and Twirlers.
I’m also back in the Corner of Knit and Tea’s team. I was a member for 3 years and then wasn’t in the team last year (as I captained the Guild team) and I lost my spinning mojo, so perhaps that team is my lucky charm for keeping my mojo high.
Also Alissa from Headknits and Sarah from Mildly Granola and I will be keeping in touch on how our spinning is going.
This year my main aim is to finish existing projects:
- John Arbon Harvest Hues. I started with 660g of fibre and I’m about 3/4 through. I started this in January 2020…or possibly earlier.
- BFL/Shetland in Parma violet colourway. I started this a few weeks ago but this was on my TDF to do list for 2019!
- I have been spinning my 4th colourway of baby camel and silk fibre. I have one bobbin filled and another to finish and then ply them. I’m thinking 2 ply and I’ll use it in a shawl.
- Breed project. I have been spinning small amounts of different breeds and I have a few washed and prepped breeds to spin up towards that.
