Le Tour de Fleece: 2009

Posted on: July 4, 2009

tour de fleece 2009

 

A certain someone put a bug in my ear about joining the Tour de Fleece this year.  As I looked at my fiber stash, I decided “Why the heck not??”   I’ve got fiber.  What’s the fun in having it if I never spin it up?

I’ve decided not to go hog wild and have made my goal very simple. 

Yes.  Goal.  Singular. 

My goal is to finish spinning up the 4 oz of orange merino that I started months ago, and to ply it.  That’s all.  Simple.

Let the spinning begin!

 

P.S.  And for those of you (yes, you know who you are!) looking for WIP photos of the Apres Surf, they are coming.   I had to frog back several inches of knitting because we all know I have teh lace dumb.  It’s well documented.  So having to do waist decreases AND keep the lace pattern in tact was a bit much for me.  So I’m monkeying around with the pattern, and we’ll see how it goes.  I hope I can figure it out because I absolutely adore that hoodie.

‘Someone’ says YAY! 😀 That’s some lovely fiber! Lace always seems to get me too. I have no doubt you can figure it out! Have a safe and happy 4th! 🙂

Yay! My only spinning goal is to let roving/fleece pass through my hands (at least a little) every day and we’ll see how far it goes.

I always get the lace dumb and have to frog before I get it right!

What? I didn’t say a word!
