Tour de Fleece 2013…

…the spinning so far. As per usual, I’m spinning my Spunky Club fiber for TdF to attempt to whittle away at the 8ish POUNDS that are now stuffed into the Bin of Shame Awesome.

I think I’ve managed to spin twice as much this year as I spun last year. Which isn’t much since last year I managed to spin 4oz. ;o)

First up, ‘David’s Gift’ on SW Corriedale:

Spun on the CPW and plied on the Matchless from a center-pull ball. I ended up with 284 yards of fingering-ish weight. I seriously love this colorway!

Second we have ‘Eye of the Peacock’ on Cotswold Sheepswool Sliver:

Also spun on the CPW and plied on the Matchless frmo a center-pull ball. This ended up being 177 yards of thick/thin 2-ply that varies in weight. This is SO pretty, it’s possibly going to be a hat someday but currently it’s just going to be pretty.

That’s it so far! I’m not sure what else I’ll be able to get done before the end of the Tour because now I’m prepping for vending at Fiber Revival on August 10!

See you soon! Spin Happy!



Spa Knit & Spin was…

…last weekend (yes it took me a week to recover lol) and also fun and exhausting all rolled up together! I had lots of fun helping Amy and hanging out with friends all weekend – but I was so busy, the camera never came out of the bag! I did manage a few photos while I was there and I think they sum up the weekend very well:
