Le Tour de Fleece

Jersey Knitter had a post on her blog about the Le Tour de Fleece created by Katherine of wabi sabi. I checked it out and joined…its a spin-along that coincides with the Tour de France. It runs from July 1 through July 23. Sign-ups are closing on June 29, so if you are interested, sign up now!

My challenge for this spin-along is to card and spin the cranberry fleece from MDS&W. I started carding it as soon as it dried from the dyeing…but then….it got to be a bit of a drag, and I put it down. Its just sitting there on a basket next to my wheel….and I try to avoid looking at it now because it makes me feel guilty that I’m spinning something else.

I do have some of the fleece carded already, but the bulk of it isn’t. I can’t start anything on this challenge until July 1 – its a good thing I’m on vacation next week and the following. Maybe next week I’ll card it all up, and then take the rest of the time to spin it.

I think this will be a good challenge because there is a lot of fleece, and carding it takes a bit. I was wondering if I should take my wheel on vacation, and now I know I should! I can’t imagine anything nicer than sitting on the deck in the morning in the Outer Banks spinning….I can’t wait to get there!

    Oh that looks like a lot of fun! I can’t wait too see your progress. I joined up on another spinning challenge, but I’m failing miserably. Hopefully tonight I’ll get some spinning in.
